Calling all colorful creatures, big and small! Delight in the vibrant colors and friendly "creatures" of this brand-new exhibit at the Botanical Gardens! The Botanical Gardens will be filled with several cool, colorful creatures made out of live plants including dinosaur succulent topiaries, a coleus peacock, moss-made dinosaurs, a giant buffalo, a dragonfly, a shark, and more planty friends taking on new characters giving "plant-life" a whole new meaning! Not only will you see our planty creatures, but you'll also see dozens of dinosaurs and fossils from Past & Present throughout the entire conservatory! And finally you'll also be dazzled by hundreds of vibrant colored coleus throughout the conservatory for some pops of color like you've never seen before.

This incredible after dark experience will fill you with excitement and wonder as you explore our collection of cool creatures made out of plants, dinosaurs and fossils from Past & Present, vibrant coleus, AND the Mum Exhibit all under spectacular lights!
