The World's Largest Floral Installation Took 6 Months to Create - Watch It Happen in 90 Seconds
We already know the Dubai Miracle Garden is like walking into a fantasy world. But their latest feature makes a visit to the land of flowers totally unreal. They've just shared what the largest floral installation in the world looks like, and it comes in the form of an Emirates A380 aircraft. Made of 5 million flowers and weighing 100 tons (a real one would weight 575 tons) the flowers took four months to grow.
It's made up of seven varieties of flowers including the Petunia, Coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides), Marigold (Tagetes), Snapdragon (Antirrhinum), Viola, Geranium (Pelargonium) and Gaillardia (Gaillardia aristata) and over 9,000 flowers and plants make up the Emirates logo, alone.
One hundred thousand pretty blossoms cover the plane's 80.27-meter-wide-wings and it was no easy feat. Two hundred people collaborated to put it together, working 10-hour days for six months.
"Having an Emirates A380 is a great achievement for Dubai Miracle Garden and we are proud to have the floral installation of the aircraft as the world's largest floral sculpture ever built," Abdel Naser Rahhal, Co-Founder and Creator of Dubai Miracle Garden explains. "This standing piece of art is a result of countless hours of brainstorming, designing and strategizing to pull all of the details together."
