Amazing Garden Sculptures at the Montreal Botanic Garden

You don’t need to speak or understand French to enjoy one of the greatest gardens in the world, the Montreal Botanic Garden in Montréal, Quebec, Canada.

The 75 hectare garden (French: Jardin Botanique de Montreal) features over 3 million plants, but the main attraction this year is the “Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal,” an international competition for horticultural artists. This year, more than 50 larger-than-life, breathtaking horticultural sculptures were displayed The theme for this year’s competition is “Land of Hope,” and organizers hope the sculptures will bring about environmental awareness.

Artists from around the world created giant garden sculptures of galloping horses, playful gorillas, swans, a lizard, water buffalo, a turtle jumping over a piano, garden nymphs, and more! The living sculptures are made using a steel frame wrapped in a metal mesh, which is then filled with soil and plants.

Here is a video of the amazing garden sculptures at the 2013 Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal festival:

If you love flowers and plants, be sure to visit the Montreal Botanic Gardens! There are over 22 000 different plants spread over 10 greenhouses, and over 30 thematic gardens. The festival goes on until the end of September and is expected to attract a million visitors!
