Carousel Creatures Come to Life at the 2011 Flower Show


Topiary Creator Carl Hagerty with the Dolphin

Carl Hagerty will wow us again with his topiary masterpieces at this year’s Flower Show. In the past you have seen such delights as an elephant in Jamie Rothstein’s Passport to the World exhibit (depicting a wedding in India), and this year you will see even more creative creatures. Check out our slide show below for a little sneak-peak at Carl’s work, which includes a peacock, a dolphin, a butterfly, and a lion—with more to come! They will be located on the Flower Show’s Center Stage, as a part of  a fabulous carousel of floral design.

When the frame is finished, Barb King of Valley Forge Flowers will complete the magic with greens and flowers. Some lucky people were able to see a preview at last Monday’s press conference at the Sofitel Hotel Philadelphia, where the peacock made its debut. Of course, Valley Forge Flowers will outfit it with new feathers come March.
