Each season, the enormously talented horticulturalists and designers who make up the Bellagio Conservatory team transform this 14,000-square-foot floral playground into a showcase of the distinctive sights and colors of spring, summer, fall and winter—along with a special display for Chinese New Year. When the seasons turn and the displays rotate, 90 percent of the trees, flowers and plants in the conservatory are recycled, to further celebrate our commitment to the earth.
Among the thousands of flowers including tulips, daffodils and lilies, guests will encounter a 45-foot-tall Cherry Blossom tree with a wooden stage nestled in the branches for nightly musical performances. Visitors are invited to stroll through the winding pathway of the oversized tree where koi fish below can be viewed up close on two monitors with live underwater feeds. Forty oversized raindrops sprinkle spring showers throughout the Bellagio Conservatory garden overhead.

Guests will be entranced by the sight of more than 800 live butterflies fluttering inside the 36-foot-long greenhouse located in the East Garden. The butterfly species on display originate from around the world including Costa Rica, the Philippines and Kenya. The perimeter of the greenhouse is adorned with an assortment of yellow, pink and white flowers filling out this lush garden.
The North Garden boasts an explosion of color as five aluminum watering cans stream into a pond below as 14-foot-tall multicolored tulips and 22-foot-tall yellow daffodils bloom nearby. Fresh flowers complement the oversized flora creating a storybook setting. Two floral ladybugs embellished in red carnations rest throughout the Garden and 50 butterflies, made from organic materials including green crushed Manzanita leaves, orange carrot flakes, lentils, radishes and rice, flutter overhead.
Flowers in the South Garden peer up at a 22-foot-tall neon green gardening shovel and oversized hand-painted flower pots. Two caterpillars wiggle around a performance stage, the second in the Conservatory, through rows of shrubs including gardenias, hibiscus and bougainvillea. Eight-foot long caterpillars, covered in colored moss and hand-painted faces, greet guests visiting this Garden.
The displays within Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens are complimentary to the public and open daily, 24 hours a day (seasonal).
