Inspired by plants found in Northwest gardens, hundreds of volunteers work year round to bundle strings of lights into three dimensional flowers, shrubs, and vines. In addition to artistic interpretation of plants, the volunteer team has created charming animal characters.
Charlotte the spider remains a favorite and will be back in her web near the Ground Cover Garden.
During the first three weeks of November, these creations are “planted” in the Botanical Garden. Then, with the flip of a switch on November 24, this unique holiday garden blooms every evening from 5 to 10 p.m. (last entry at 9:30 p.m.) through December 31.
