Leaf-peeping, Las Vegas-style at the Bellagio

Brightly colored floral mushroom topiaries, towering ginkgo trees, festive foliage and whimsical dragonflies highlight the autumn display at the Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Garden.

“Deeper Into the Woods,” designed by Ed Libby and installed by the Bellagio’s horticulture team, is open through Nov. 13.

“As guests embark on their journey, a fairytale-like adventure inspires transformation and reflection at each turn,” Libby said. “Our fall display is designed to be a fully immersive experience through delightful visuals, scents and sounds that give guests the familiar warm and cozy autumn feeling.”
