BALL GROUND, Ga., Aug. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Giverny in Georgia? Gibbs Gardens takes on a decidedly French ambiance in August and September as 147 varieties of hardy and tropical waterlilies burst forth with jewel-toned colors in full, gorgeous bloom. C'est magnifique!
Inspired by French artist Claude Monet's famous Giverny garden near Paris, Jim Gibbs created his WaterLily Gardens—including a replica of Monet's famous Japanese Foot Bridge—in the heart of Gibbs' Valley Gardens. Five ponds reflect the waterlilies' vibrant colors and perfect blooms. The bridge is painted the same color as Monet's Japanese Bridge and even has the same colors of purple and white wisteria growing above the bridge.
Drawn by the beauty of these exotic flowers, photographers flock to the WaterLily Gardens throughout August to gather around the five ponds and snap spectacular shots of the serene waterlilies reflections.
Thousands of flowers putting on a show
Annuals and perennials planted throughout the gardens are everywhere--adding drama in every direction with vivid bursts of color; varied shapes, sizes, heights and petals. Dozens of varieties of annuals and perennials show off their amazing range of color, beautiful form and velvet-soft petals as their flamboyant show peaks during the dog days of summer.
In late summer the Wildflower Meadow begins to put on a show with vivid displays of native grasses, goldenrods, asters and other wildflowers.
The secret's out: Jim Gibbs, who doesn't like to show favorites, reluctantly admits August—with its extravagant display of flowers--is his favorite month at Gibbs Gardens.
