The Mitchell Park Domes ‘Faerie Gardens’ summer floral show opened to the public June 11.
It is inspired by the storytelling traditions from when human beings lived in a world that was directly connected to the Earth itself and the nature within.
Miniature fairy gardens will be surrounded by a colorful floral display, including ‘dragon wing pink’ begonias, ‘gnome mix’ gomphrena, ‘fairy queen’ salvia, lavender, impatiens, snapdragons and more.
“This season’s show is packed with tiny, magical fairy gardens and rare plants. We encourage visitors to take their time, to wander, and discover what they can see.” Says Doris Maki, Mitchell Park Domes Director.
“We’re hoping the show will also inspire visitors to create their own miniature gardens and share their photos on social media with the hashtag #domesfaeries”
The Summer Show also includes ‘Sticker Wednesdays’, when visitors will receive a free sticker. Visitors will also be able to purchase their favorite Faerie Gardens items at the Domes gift shop.
The Fairie Gardens summer show will run until September 11, 2022.
