Montreal Botanical Garden 2013 Features Amazing Mosaicultures

Have you heard about the amazing Montreal Botanical Garden 2013? It’s also called the Mosaïcultures Internationales 2013.  It is the TOP Montreal attraction right now – running through September 29, 2013! If you wander through the Montreal Botanical Garden this summer, you’ll find furrow-browed gorillas peering from the shrubs, a row of ring-tailed lemurs walking down the road and massive red cranes towering over you. It’s not an invasion from the zoo — it’s mosaiculture, a type of horticultural art as wild as it sounds. Mosaiculture designers install carefully selected and pruned plants onto two- and three-dimensional designs, creating massive and surprisingly realistic living sculptures.

In this exhibit visitors walk along a 2-kilometer (1¼-mile) path to see the work of 50 participants from more than 20 countries. Each designer worked with a set plant catalog to sculpt something from his or her country’s culture. Check out this slide show of the amazing Montreal Botanical Garden
