New Face of Snow White Topiary, 2014

Character topiaries have been dressing up the theme parks for many years. The latest creations by Disney topiary artists are usually unveiled each spring during the annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

In an earlier Archive entry, we saw several fine examples of Snow White floral sculptures from years past. The princess was always seen wearing a "leaf" face, while the dwarfs would sport more detailed mugs-- though they were sometimes rather crude--as in this 2011 example below (near the Germany Pavilion).



This year's 2014 Flower & Garden Festival is different. All of the Snow White characters are wearing very authentic looking faces. The princess, in particular, looks terrific. The following shots were snapped on a fine sunny day in March by Ricky Brigante of InsidetheMagic.net.

  2. Wow, those are impressive!

    One of my neighbors has framework for Mickey Mouse topiaries, but those haven't been maintained for a while.

    1. Cool. I've never seen Disney topiaries outside of the park.

  3. I wonder how they do those faces. Is it something like a Chia Pet??

    1. That's what I was wondering too...Chia Pet. Sure looks like something similar to what we used to see on those 80s TV commercials.
