"Tour of Italy" Theme (June - September 2017)
The Conservatory & Botanical Gardens combines horticultural prowess with spectacular design. There’s a total of 57,000 flowers in the Tour of Italy arrangement. Flowers include New Guinea Impatiens, Calandiva, Hydrangea, Mandevilla, Achillea, Salvia, Pineapple Lily, Azalea, Chrysanthemum, Miniature Rose, and Calla Lily.
There are 560 shrubs which include Bougainvillea James Walker, Buxus Microphila, Japonica Winter Gem, Hibiscus Erin Rachel, Hibiscus Red Dragon, Hydrangea Blue Entrantress, Lonicera Japonica Halliana, Mandarin Honeysuckle, Frasers Photinia, Brilliant Pink Iceberg Rose and Double Knockout Rose.
There are 52 trees ranging from Magnolia, Ficus Nadidia to Cypress Trees. There are also 2000 Ivy’s on display. This captivating adventure will take you back in time to a century old garden paradise. The soothing sound of the crisp water cascading down the waterfall brings serenity to the garden bed.
At the Far East corner of the bed rests an Armillary Sphere.This replica of a vintage compass was created 300 years B.C. The North Bed features a Fountain Wall that stands 5’ in height. This fountain was inspired by the fountain dell’Ovato in Villa d' Este Garden in Tivoli, Italy.
The fountain are fashioned with three lion heads and two monkey head spouts where the water cascades generously to the pond below. We wanted to harness every detail in this display.

Most hotels have gardeners, but the Bellagio has 120 of them. That's not including the designers, engineers and electricians who work behind the scenes to make all that magic happen. With 15,000-18,000 visitors to impress every day, you don't have to be a genius to understand why they need so many hands on deck.
Five times a year: Chinese New Year, spring, summer, fall and winter, the Bellagio Conservatory team creates a full-blown floral production. For an entire week, the staff work 24 hours a day to transform the nearly 14,000-square-foot space with tens of thousands of flowers, trees, and plants.
The horticulturalists, who are artists in their own right, create jaw-dropping displays that most people couldn't even make with paper, let alone flowers. It's pretty safe to say that they have more creativity in their pinky fingers than most of us do in our entire bodies.
During the course of each seasonal exhibit, more than 10,000 potted flowers are hand-watered and switched out every two weeks. Don't worry, all the wilted flowers are reused and converted to mulch, in fact 90 percent of the conservatory is recycled. How's that for green? These creations are so impressive that more than 5 million visitors a year come to experience them.

Bellagio is a luxury hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It is owned by MGM Resorts International and was built on the site of the demolished Dunes hotel and casino. Inspired by the Lake Como town of Bellagio in Italy, Bellagio is famed for its elegance. One of its most notable features is an 8-acre (3.2 ha) lake between the building and the Strip, which houses the Fountains of Bellagio, a large dancing water fountain synchronized to music.
Inside Bellagio, Dale Chihuly's Fiori di Como, composed of over 2,000 hand-blown glass flowers, covers 2,000 sq ft (190 m2) of the lobby ceiling. Bellagio is home to Cirque du Soleil's aquatic production "O". The main (original) tower of Bellagio, with 3,015 rooms, has 36 floors and a height of 508 ft (151 m). The Spa Tower, which stands to the south of the main tower, has 33 floors, a height of 392 ft (119 m), and contains 935 rooms.
