Description:

Immerse yourself in wonder and whimsy at the Garden in 2022. Meet larger-than-life Alice in Wonderland themed sculptures constructed entirely of mosaiculture, the horticultural art of creating giant topiary-like sculptures using thousands of annual bedding plants to carpet steel armature forms. As you explore the Garden you’ll encounter The Red Queen playing her curious version of croquet, Alice spinning through Wonderland, card guards and pawns defending The Chess Set, and the mysterious grin of The Cheshire Cat.

Each month you can enjoy a diverse series of Alice-related programming at the Garden focusing on literacy, arts, horticulture, and more. From family-friendly tea parties and storytimes to garden chats and date nights, we have something for everyone to enjoy. And don’t miss Twilight Thursdays at the Garden! Each Thursday for the duration of the exhibit we’ll be open late for dog-friendly hours with food trucks and curious cocktails.

Come back for Holiday Wonders at the Garden, starting the first Friday after Thanksgiving, when these sculptures will be transformed with light creating a winter wonderland at the Garden.

Due to the expected popularity of Alice’s Adventures at the Garden and in an effort to improve everyone’s experience, we are hosting two Members Only Preview Days on May 6 & 7 prior to the official opening to the public on May 8. The Garden will be closed for all non-members on May 6 & 7. Click to join today!

Tickets on sale April 1. Don’t be late!

Alice’s Adventures at the Garden was originally designed and developed by the Atlanta Botanical Garden in collaboration with Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal.
