Ultra Violet Summer Floral Show at the Domes

Mitchell Park Domes Ultra Violet Summer Floral Show | http://www.roseclearfield.com

The summer floral show, Ultra Violet, is up and running at the Mitchell Park Domes through September 10! Yes, ultra violet means that the entire show is purple, which is a lot of fun and just really different from their other shows the past couple of years.

Ultra Violet features a wide range of purple from indigo to iridescent purple with angelonia, impatiens, petunias, persian shield, heliotrope, dusty miller, tibouchina shrubs, vinca, and more. (As always, thanks to the Domes for providing information about the flowers because I’m clueless about most flower names.)

The exhibit also boasts abstract sculptures, of course, in more purples, amidst the plants. Some sculptures resemble the structure or a portion of the structure of the Domes while other sculptures are inspired by plant forms. All of the sculptures are made from upcycled gardening and greenhouse supplies, such as greenhouse racks and shelves, plant trays, gardening tools, and window frames, as well as other recycled materials. In the above photo, the large purple structures are painted lamp post components.

    WOW, that’s like an Instagrammer’s dream! Such a cool sight to see – I’m so glad you got to be there so you could take us with you 🙂

    Wow! This is absolutely breathtaking. Not to mention, purple is my favorite color! I now live in the desert and I miss seeing flowers that do not bloom upon cacti. This looks like the perfect place to just sit with a cup of coffee and take in the beauty. Your photographs are amazing.

    Beautiful! I’m a big purple lover. =)
