How “Bloom with a View” blossomed! 


“Bloom with a View” is being designed by the Dutch company IGMPR, who has created these stunning displays all over the world in places like Italy and Shanghai, making this a truly world-class event! The work represents a year of careful planning.

But “Bloom with A View” is also unique, sculpted specifically for the gardens and landscape of the North Carolina Arboretum and built with the assistance and expert craftsmanship of local printers, plant producers, wood shops and our own Arboretum staff.
