flowerThe PHS Philadelphia Flower Show

The 2017 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, Holland: Flowering the World,” will celebrate the beauty and ingenuity of Dutch culture, from vivid flower fields to innovative eco-design, on March 11 to 19 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. No other country is as well known for its floral industry as the Netherlands, which fills the world with color. The Philadelphia Flower Show will transport guests to the rainbow landscapes of tulips, hyacinths and daffodils and the cut-flower and bulb markets that have shaped Dutch history. America’s premier floral and garden designers will celebrate facets of Holland’s culture throughout the 10 acres of exhibition halls at the Philadelphia Flower Show, which supports the transformative greening and beautification work of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. The Flower Show will also explore the innovation that has defined Holland’s approach to its unique landscape, from windmills – one of the earliest uses of natural energy – to 21st-century ecodomes and the Dutch Wave movement, which takes a natural and sustainable approach to landscape design. Leading designers from Holland, including Nico Wissing, Bart Hoes, Bart Bresser, and New Jersey-born Carrie Preston, will share their extraordinary floral and garden styles in major exhibits at the Flower Show.
