As for topiaries, the 2020 festival will feature a brand-new Remy topiary, which will be the featured centerpiece of a Ratatouille-themed garden at the France pavilion to celebrate the upcoming opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in summer 2020. The floral Remy will be surrounded by a garden of vegetables that make up the ingredients of a ratatouille recipe.
