the vertical garden by patrick blanc

This amazing vertical garden seen above at the small Paris boutique hotel, Pershing Hall, was installed by Patrick Blanc, known for the invention of the vertical garden. Blanc has done projects large and small all over the globe, from the world’s tallest vertical garden in Sydney to a small clothing store in Charlotte, North Carolina. The garden above at Pershing Hall has over 300 species of trees, shrubs and plants.  Blanc has done several projects in the United States, check out his project section of his site and view the world map to find out where there’s one close to you. Or just peruse his site for beautiful and breathtaking  inspiration and watch his video field trips to be transported into his world of botanicals.
