Flamboyance: A Topiary Menagerie 

May 1 - July 31


70 pink flamingos are taking over our Amphitheater Lawn this spring, and they’re joined by a pack of dogs, fluffle of rabbits, troop of monkeys, swarm of butterflies and a pod of dolphins! Flamboyance features more than 100 topiary animals presented in six groupings throughout the Garden. The largest of these groupings is the 70 life-sized flamingos filled with begonias – hence the name of the exhibit, Flamboyance, which runs at the Garden from May 1 through July 31.


Also part of the exhibit is a pair of beautiful, oversized butterfly wings for visitors to snap a photo in front of. You won’t be able to miss them, but just in case, they will be located in front of the SOAR – Tropical Butterflies exhibit. And while Flamboyance is free with Garden admission, there is one hidden topiary in our butterfly pavilion for those visiting that exhibit. Can you find it? 


Some areas of Flamboyance might be impassable for wheelchairs or those with mobility issues. We have a select amount of accessibility tickets available on Saturdays that include a 20-minute golf cart ride to see the topiaries. Accessibility tickets should be booked in advance by calling Guest Services at 424-452-0920. If these tickets have not been booked in advance, we will not be able to accommodate you due to limited availability.




By purchasing a ticket, you acknowledge that: 

  • If you are fully vaccinated, facial coverings are optional in our outdoor spaces. The County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health strongly recommends that you wear a mask at crowded outdoor events, while in line to enter, exit, use the bathroom, or buy food or drinks. It is strongly recommended that children wear a mask on playgrounds and in other outdoor spaces where they gather if distancing is not possible or practical. If you are not fully vaccinated, it is strongly recommended that you wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings. If you are in a setting where you are in sustained close contact with other people who may not be fully vaccinated, consider wearing a higher level of protection, such as wearing two masks (double masking) or an N95 respirator. This is especially important if you are not fully vaccinated and are in an indoor or crowded outdoor setting.
  • Professionally trained service dogs are allowed in the Garden, though Emotional Support animals are not permitted. Service dogs must be in the control of the owner at all times
  • Picnics and outside food and beverage are welcome at the Garden, though set ups must remain casual without furniture or tents or staked umbrellas
  • Both Members and Non-Members require advance ticket reservations
  • Please be sure to check out our Plan Your Visit page for Garden rules, full COVID-19 procedures and more
