DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden has unveiled a new exhibit featuring small hanging trees and flowers.

The High Flight exhibit offers a presentation showcasing hanging arrangements inspired by Japanese string gardens. There are more than 250 pieces on display during the six-week exhibit, which opened Thursday. It's available through May 18.

Officials say a blue steel sculpture constructed by a volunteer artist will be the exhibit's centerpiece. There will also be sky cables over various pathways in the conservatory.

Botanical officials will offer a workshop inspired by the exhibit on April 26.
