Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens Debuts New Summer Display ‘Jungle of Dreams'

 
Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens welcomes summer with the debut of its spectacular new display “Jungle of Dreams” that pays homage to the animal kingdom. With 28 animal sculptures and close to 10,000 plants and flowers, Jungle of Dreams takes guests on a journey through a magical place with moments of discovery and whimsy around every corner, as majestic animals gather to celebrate the coronation of the king of the jungle.
 
“Working with the talented Bellagio horticulture team, we took a scene that is captivating, visual and dramatic and brought it to life as only Bellagio can,” said designer Ed Libby. “New elements, including LED screens, along with tropical plants, foliage and flowers from around the world provide a feast for the eyes to all who visit, transporting them to this very special space we created.”
 
The West Bed pays tribute to the “King of the Jungle,” where a Lion standing over 20 feet tall commands the space while his nine-foot-tall cub poses atop a giant gold frame. The lion, made from grass seeds, cut oat, wheat and barley seeds, wears a gilded crown adorned with the iconic Bellagio ‘B’ above a mane made of 2,500 preserved pampas grass plumes.  Nearby,  fanciful pink flamingos, ornate blue parrots and a toucan play while a majestic waterfall and a bamboo tree house round out the scene.

The East Bed  showcases four giraffes made of brown and golden flax seeds and lavishly draped in fresh floral garlands, welcoming guests to the conservatory. As they enter through a bamboo gazebo decorated with gilded pineapples, a symbol of hospitality in international cultures, visitors walk upon a giraffe print-patterned floor.

The South Bed is decorated in a striking palette of black, white and gold as a Zebra made of rose petals takes center stage, with its child greeting guests behind intricate ormolu frames. A graceful black and white Raggiana bird-of-paradise soars above the bed while a giant boa constrictor lounges on a date palm tree overlooking a pond.

The North Bed  is transformed into an Amazon landscape where monkeys in floral pageantry swing from vines high above and a jungle boat begins its journey. Cooling himself by the water is the monkey king, holding a hand-painted 18-inch parasol and wearing a handcrafted traditional Thai crown. Blue herons made from botanical materials drink from the “river” as a majestic jaguar perches nearby. Furthering the sense of wonder and discovery, state-of-the-art LED screens take guests on an immersive expedition through the jungle.
