Flower Towers #2

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 17 February 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Flower towers spotted inside the Glacier Gardens in Juneau, Alaska. These flower towers are actually tree trunks that are flipped upside down with the root balls of the trees forming planters for various plants and flower arrangements. These trees were a result of a major landslide that occurred in 1984. The owner of the property took these trees and flipped them upside down and planted them deep into the ground.

more and more amazing ... and certainly rewarding to stop by.
do you know since when this park has been around? i somehow missed it in 2001 - or it didn't exist yet.

@franz: It's been open since 1998. More information can be found HERE.

Really original idea and with a great visual result. I love the mixture of the different plants on the top (or should I say the bottom) of the tree.
