Tiffany: The Pursuit of Beauty in Nature Horticulture Vignettes

Lead Beds


The borders of these plantings, featuring Neoregelias, reference the leading that frames the brightly colored glass of Tiffany’s windows and lamps.


Rooted in Nature


The incredible roots of Selby Gardens’ iconic Moreton Bay fig (Ficus macrophylla) frame more than 1,000 colorful Guzmanias in the ultimate homage to Tiffany’s leaded glass.


Succulents in Silhouette


The spectrum of colored panels that lines the Succulent Garden features stylized silhouettes of Agave americana, commonly known as the century plant.


Sunset on Palms


Three decorative panels cast the colors of sunset on a cluster of palms including, from left to right, Bismarckia nobilis (Bismarck palm), Archontophoenix alexandrae (King Alexander palm), and Dypsis lutescens (areca palm).


Living Lampshade


The distinctive form of this extraordinary gazebo, decorated with an orchid-inspired design, references the leaded-glass shades of the lamps for which Tiffany Studios is now best remembered. Under the gazebo is a bubbling fountain and an attractive flower bed.


Flowing Flower


A mosaic of crushed glass, colored stones, flowing water, and lush plants creates a picture of a wildflower in a landscape.


Tiffany in Glory


Decorated with morning glory flowers, the triumphal entryway into the Museum of Botany & the Arts celebrates Tiffany’s creativity and imagination.
