On view through September 12, the exhibit combines iconic underwater and beach elements including mermaids, sunken ships and sandcastles.

Schools of acrylic fish and bright barnacles find a home amongst the cascading water walls of a multi-tiered, 26-foot tall coral reef in the West Garden. Each level of this magnificent centerpiece reveals a different group of underwater dwellers. A six-foot animated clam rests beneath the schools of fish and bunches of colorful coral, opening every seven minutes to reveal an illuminated pearl behind a curtain of bubbles. A floral sea turtle comprised of red carnations and yellow Fuji mums rests opposite the clam, while soft and delicate jellyfish gently sway above the garden.

An aged fisherman’s wharf, aptly named Pier B, can be found in the South Garden beneath oversized strings of pearls and bubbles. Three children play in the sand beside the pier, each created with 1,250 fresh-cut flowers including Seafoam Statice, cushion mums, carnations, lavender and baby’s breath. As one child builds a sandcastle replica of Bellagio, the others fish and play with beach balls.

A sunken fishing vessel made of teak, mahogany and cedar wood is burrowed below the sand and flowers in the East Garden. Treasure chests overflowing with twinkling jewels and riches surround the sunken ship while multiple water features mimic the ocean current.

In the North Garden, a beautiful mermaid with 1,500 fresh-cut flowers in her tail sits aside a flowing waterfall. Nearby colorful seahorses of varying heights are nestled within the rocky hillside.

Two live 45-minute musical performances will take place daily 4:30 ­ 5:15 p.m. and 5:45 ­ 6:30 p.m..m., filling Bellagio’s Conservatory with varieties of jazz and symphonic harps.

Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is complimentary to the public.
