Mounts Botanical Garden Invites Families & Friends to View TROPICAL HOLIDAY TREES AT MOUNTS

 
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Nov. 23, 2023 - PRLog -- (West Palm Beach, FL – November 22, 2023) Mounts Botanical Garden is embracing the season with its new exhibition, TROPICAL HOLIDAY TREES AT MOUNTS featuring two framed, 8-15 foot trees designed by the Mounts Horticulture Team and installed with dozens of colorful bromeliads and other tropical botanicals. In addition, the popular Stickwork sculpture by internationally acclaimed artist Patrick Dougherty has also been adorned in holiday décor. The colorful displays run through December 31.

"Both of these seasonal exhibits—the two decorated bromeliad trees and Stickwork—are perfect backdrops for family holiday photos; plus, the Mounts Gift Shop is now offering new holiday merchandise," says Rochelle Wolberg, Curator-Director of Palm Beach County's oldest and largest 20-public garden. The beautiful tropical oasis is conveniently located just minutes from downtown West Palm Beach.

"Speaking of Stickwork, Patrick Dougherty recently received the prestigious North Carolina Award, the state's highest civilian honor recognizing significant contributions in the fields of fine arts, literature, public service, and science," Wolberg adds. "Mounts Botanical Garden is very proud to be exhibiting this distinguished artist's final large-scale Stickwork installation, which he constructed from 30,000 pounds of live willow branches."

TROPICAL HOLIDAY TREES AT MOUNTS is open for public view Tuesday through Sunday, 9 am to 4 pm. Last entry at 3 pm. Tickets are available for purchase at the gate. Admission is FREE for Mounts members and children under 6; $15 for nonmember adults; $12 for seniors 65+, college students, and military with ID; $7 for children 6-17.
