“Bloom with a View” is an immersive floral installation sponsored in part by B.B. Barns and exhibiting on the grounds of The North Carolina Arboretum. Plant and flower lovers, don’t miss it! Throughout the gardens, colorful and festive planters will elevate thousands of blooms to eye-level. Wander, explore and even lose yourself among the flowers!

For its introductory year, “Bloom with a View” will place vibrant bursts of colorful hydrangeas prominently, with appearances by elegant calla lilies, with oriental and Asiatic lilies forecasted! The ocean of color will provide an excellent avenue to wander meditatively, frolic among the flowers or take that uniquely perfect image or video. Be sure to tag your photos with #NCBloomWithAView and share the experience!

About Bloom with a View

“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, Arboretum staff and local sponsors like B.B. Barns.
