Macy's Flower Show - Brasil

The mascot of the 2012 Macy’s Flower Show is a 10-foot tall Toucan topiary, sculpted by artists at Macy’s Parade Studio. Its beak and chest are covered with several thousand Brazilian Button Flowers applied by the floral designers at Bachman’s, who also meticulously arranged thousands of magnolia leaves to simulate the bird’s plumage.

Through Sunday, April 7, check out Brasil: Gardens in Paradise at five Macy’s flagship locations nationwide: Herald Square in NYC, Center City in Philadelphia, State Street in Chicago, downtown Minneapolis and Union Square in San Francisco.
