Mosaiculture is a horticultural art form that involves creating and mounting living artworks made mostly from plants. The colorful foliage, usually annuals and sometimes perennials, are combined with two- or three-dimensional drawings, designs, sculptures or reliefs, creating living and constantly changing environments that look like magical fairytale landscapes.

The Internationales de Montréal (MIM) has been bringing together botanical artists from all over the world for 16 years, promoting gardening and horticulture through some of the most creative plant art out there. This year’s exhibition features an impressive collection of sculptures-thematic gardens that take shape of abstract art, shepherds, forest nymphs, monkeys and giant flowers, scattered along a 2.2 km path that runs through the garden.
