Summer may still be a month away but the Bellagio is gearing up for the season with its annual Summer Garden display at its Conservatory.
The Bellagio Conservatory Summer Garden exhibit, which officially opened to the public on May 21, celebrates the lazy days of summer with props and art installations that reflect popular summer activities and symbols including patriotic displays of the Stars and Stripes. Guests to this year’s gardens can expect to see a lighthouse theme with summer’s most vibrant flowers in addition to some of the classic installations at the botanical gardens, like the 40-foot full-scale Ferris wheel and a moving 11-foot-tall carousel, both of which will no doubt be decorated with summer colors, flowers and plants.
If you had the opportunity to see the Summer Garden last year, you know just how beautiful it can be, but this year; don’t expect to see the same flowers or displays. Every year the gardens introduces new elements to the rotating seasonal exhibits, so you can go for the next five years and not see the same thing twice!
In addition to the gorgeous plants, flower and trees and summer exhibits at the display, guests will also be able to enjoy live musical performances from 5 p.m. - 6 p.m. daily, from the Victorian Gazebo in the South Garden. As you walk through the colorful gardens you’ll hear the serene sounds of harps and violins playing in the background. The compositions heard and arrangements seen are inspired by European musical geniuses like Mozart, Beethoven, Bach and Chopin.
The Summer Garden is one of five different exhibits the Bellagio Conservatory puts on each year, with over 10,000 brand new plants filling the conservatory with each exhibit change over. The Bellagio’s Spring display, which ended May 13, is perhaps the most popular display the gardens puts on each year and showcases some of the most gorgeous flowers of the season including tulips, azaleas, hibiscus and lilies. Just like in the summer display, the Bellagio’s spring display also transforms the gardens’ Ferris wheel and carousel to reflect all things spring.
