Back for its fifth year, the Galleria Floral Experience is embarking on a journey under the sea with its newly imagined theme, “Into the Deep.” Crafted by landscape architect Bryan Kramer, this year’s experience features over 100 types of flowers, trees, and plants, with more than 3,000 bulbs being coaxed into an early bloom by the team at Bachman’s. “We’re excited to bring the Galleria Floral Experience back again for our regular shoppers, special visitors, and our family of stores,” says Wendy Eisenberg, general manager at Galleria Edina. “It’s been our gift to the Twin Cities for five years—delivering a bit of spring when everyone is craving a break from the winter doldrums.”

Throughout the event, there will be more than 20 blooming displays and vignettes to explore, ensuring there is no shortage of opportunities to experience the immersive exhibits. Bachman’s experts will oversee the gardens for the 15-day show, replacing flowering bulbs halfway through, as well as using mobile watering carts to provide the plants with fresh water throughout.

The mall-wide event takes inspiration from the ocean in not only the gardens—which feature enchanting and whimsical elements—but also in sea-inspired installations including a giant octopus, floating jellyfish, two tall seahorses, and more. Karen Bachman Thull, director of marketing and corporate communications at Bachman’s, says, “This year’s thoroughly immersive experience will bring glorious sea-inspired floral sights and creative floor-to-ceiling installations to engage everyone’s sense of wonder and enjoyment.”

And if you’re looking to shop while you’re there, Galleria stores and restaurants are contributing to the theme through their own displays—with some offering exclusive specials related to the event.

The entire event is free and open to the public for self-guided tours from March 24-April 7. Valet parking is free and available at the east entrance.
