Grown Up Flowers is the name of a fun Public Art installation that you can see at several locations along Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Ave) in Midtown Manhattan. This Pink Flower, which is called Rose, lays prone in front of 1221 Sixth Avenue, and just a bit further on you can see her Orange friend, peeking out just a bit in the background.

I found these guys by accident when I was heading to the train after checking out the Anselm Kiefer sculpture in Rockefeller Center, so it was a nice surprise!

A Sign in front of Rose provides a bit more back ground on the Grown Up Flowers Project. It Says:

Before it was Manhattan, the island was covered with wild and beautiful flowers. They’re still found in front of buildings, but they’ve never been able to complete with the scale of their surroundings, until now. Grown Up Flowers is a multi-site installation by Playlab, Inc. that imagines flowers inflated to many times their normal size, giving viewers a new perspective on these iconic and playful representations of beauty. Wander along Sixth Avenue to see these colorful flowers sitting, lounging, floating, standing tall, or even bending down to greet you.

Here is a map to all of their locations:

The flowers are secured in place with cables and lit from the inside for nighttime viewing. Find out more about Grown Up Flowers at This Link.
