I’m thrilled to be a Philadelphia International Flower Show Official Blogger! What does this mean for you? Besides sharing behind the scene and exclusive info about the Flower Show, I’ll have an AMAZING giveaway or two just for you my awesome readers!
This year, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will take visitors on a trip to a whole new Philadelphia International Flower Show. Mark your calendars, this year’s presentation will take place March 4-11 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Guests will have fun, learn more, and be wowed by real-time floral competitions, the world’s largest lettuce wall, internationally renowned speakers, and a whole new layout of displays.
The new vibe of the Show will be most evident in the themed gardens. “Hawaii: Islands of Aloha,” this year’s rallying theme, will introduce a tropical experience that blends next-stage digital technology with the natural beauty and rich culture of the islands, and so much more.
The 2012 Flower Show also will pay tribute to the talents of the Hawaiian people in the Hawaiian Village, which will offer demonstrations, crafts and merchandise in the Grand Hall. Shop for handmade, natural items for home and garden.
Guests will enter the 2012 Flower Show beneath dynamic projections of crashing waves and one of the largest and most exciting displays of white orchids ever assembled. Towering palms, bamboo, green walls, and a tropical plant canopy will immerse visitors in the Hawaiian rainforest. A 25-foot-high waterfall will splash down into Pele’s Garden, an island of exotic flowers and plants where performers will conjure volcanic flames and the Fire Goddess.
The islands will be celebrated in showcase gardens that highlight their culture through flowers and landscapes, performances and art.
Make sure to stay tuned for the latest about the highly anticipated Philadelphia International Flower Show!
