Flower dresses

During one week you can experience five beautiful dresses created entirely from the world of flora, with dried flowers and colorful cut flowers. The dresses are created by Marie Falestam at Humlebo Inredning & trädgård.

29 July  – 6 August 2022

The exhibition of the flower dresses takes us to a time long ago, beyond time and space. They bring us into the world of fairy tales and the magic of nature. They connect to the flower king Carl Linnaeus’ life and his legacy to the world that you can experience here in the gardens in Uppsala. Each dress is inspired by characters from well-known fairy tales and stories and those who are looking can find several of the flowers in Uppsala’s gardens.

Four of the dresses are located on the stairs at Linneanum in the Botanical Garden below Uppsala Castle. Open 07:00–21:00.

The fifth dress you can see in the Linnaeus Garden. Open 11:00–20:00. Entrance fees 100 SKr 11:00–17:00.
