Where Is the Biggest Flower Garden in the World?

Believe it or not, the biggest and by far one of the most breathtaking flower gardens on Earth sits at the heart of a hot, hot desert in the Middle East.

Dubai Miracle Garden

Dubai Miracle Garden was built on the sprawling and oftentimes scorching desert land of the United Arab Emirates, in the North West Quadrant of the Arabian Ranches.

The fittingly named floral attraction first opened its gates to the public on Valentine’s Day of 2013 and charms over 1.5 million tourists every year. The inimitable beauty reportedly took 60 days, 400 people, and a whopping $11 million dollars to create.

Hailed the world’s largest natural flower garden, the 775,000 square-feet paradise boasts of 100 million blooming flowers – including different colorful varieties of petunias, marigolds, and geraniums – which were imported from countless countries abroad, from Egypt, all the way to the United States.

It holds the Guinness World Record for the Largest Vertical Garden.

Unique Floral Design Sculptures

The Dubai Miracle Garden blows its visitors' minds with numerous colossal and stunning sculptural flower arrangements and installations that go above and beyond your usual topiaries and flower beds.

The most popular and photographed attractions among tourists include the Alley of Hearts, which is a series of heart-shaped flower arches, the UAE floral flag, a clock made of flowers, cars decked in dainty flowers, a big boat adorned with flowers, a train carrying blooming bouquets, a floral version of the iconic Burj Khalifa, a life-size castle with decorated with flowers and plants from top to bottom.

But the most impressive of all is the replica of an Emirates Airbus A380, where over 500,000 fresh flowers and plants thrive, even going further to roughly five million flowers when it’s blooming season.

The Secret of This Desert Garden

Truly an incredibly miraculous sight to behold in the middle of a desert, the Dubai Miracle Garden uses an efficient and eco-friendly irrigation system, smart water-saving techniques, and moisture-retention materials, such as capillary mats, to keep its millions of flowers and plants healthy.

However, the park shuts down for four months during the peak of the hottest times of the year in the country. Organizers use this time to transform the place and create new awe-inspiring floral attractions.  Dubai Miracle Garden opened for its fifth season last November 1, which will last until the end of May 2018.
