Bellagio Botanical Gardens highlights

This glass-domed conservatory has 3 floors full of impressive displays, but one of the biggest highlights is that the displays change every season as well as for the Chinese New Year. Each is viewable for 2 or 3 months, and the brilliant horticultural designs with flowers get switched out every 2 weeks before the design is replaced entirely.

The flowers that are switched out don't go to waste. Instead, they're turned into mulch so that they can help other plants grow and prosper. The conservatory completely recycles 90% of the flowers, taking their commitment to everything green to the next level.
