Standing 43 feet tall, the enormous blooming statue is comprised of a stainless steel frame, permeable geo-textile fabric, soil and carefully arranged, real flowering plants including Marigolds, Begonias, Impatiens, Petunias, and Lobelias! It is also reputed to have its own internal irrigation system! Fun, whimsical and a wee bit kitsch http://theurgetowander.com/2013/03/15/a-blooming-statue/ Log in to Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
