The Philodendron Dome can be found on the beautiful grounds of the Myriad Botanical Gardens in Downtown Oklahoma City. Philodendron is a tropical American climbing plant that is widely grown as a greenhouse/indoor plant, which is fitting considering the dome is on the southeast side of the Crystal Bridge, an indoor botanical garden. The dome contains many huge leaves, with vines and roots climbing among the curved metal pieces forming the dome. The leaves resemble a Philodendron plant, except in size. The leaves on this sculpture are up to three feet long. Oklahoma native artist Laurie Spencer says that domes “create an atmosphere of quiet contemplating” and that “sounds resonate in a wonderful way inside the domes.” The Philodendron Dome is a great addition to one of Oklahoma City’s most popular and most beautiful attractions.
