Floral Philadelphia – Make A Bee-Line For The World-Famous Flower Show This March

Floral fans are invited to explore the 2017 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show – the largest and oldest indoor horticultural event in the world, taking place from 11 – 19 March 2017 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. With spectacular competition entries and inspiring displays, the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show has been a staple on the city’s events calendar since 1829 and attracts 250,000 visitors annually. The Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau encourages UK travellers to spring forward, wake up, smell the roses and head to the city William Penn described as his ‘greene country towne’ for an unforgettable trip this March.
This year’s theme, “HOLLAND: Flowering The World” will bring the vibrant charms of The Netherlands to Philadelphia. Bridges, windmills, canals and water gardens in a sea of 30,000 flowers – with 6,000 more blooms suspended in a giant floral canopy – will welcome visitors to the Flower Show. Guests will also pass under a brick bridge inspired by the Amsterdam cityscape and adorned with Delft tile patterns, overflowing flower boxes and hanging baskets.
