Imaginative exhibits, international design competition bring the power of flowers to life
PHILADELPHIA – The 2019 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, “Flower Power,” will pay tribute to the enormous impact of flowers on our lives, from March 2 to 10, 2019, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Across ten acres, the world’s leading floral and garden designers will explore how flowers convey a wide range of emotions and messages in a universal language that transcends cultures and borders. Stunning landscapes, imaginative gardens, and breathtaking floral displays will interpret flowers’ power to inspire and enrich our lives. Through imaginative exhibits, guests will experience the many ways in which flowers build community, promote healing, create transformation, and offer hope.
Visitors to the 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show will witness one of the world’s most prestigious floral design competitions, The FTD World Cup 2019. The international competition showcases award-winning floral designers representing over 20 countries. The breathtaking creations will be on display throughout the week of the Show.
“We are thrilled to host the FTD World Cup and this group of inspiring, talented competitors from around the world. “This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Sam Lemheney, PHS Chief of Shows & Events. “Our brilliant competitors will capture the imagination with larger than life sculptural arrangements.”
Aspiring and experienced gardeners will find a host of hands-on workshops and demonstrations in the new Home Gardener’s Hub sponsored by Subaru. A great line-up of experts will speak on dozens of topics of interest to home gardeners.
Special evening events and daily attractions will pay tribute to the “Flower Power” era with a nod to the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock music festival. Tickets are on sale now for the fabulous black-tie Preview Party, PHS’s elegant fundraiser featuring dancing and dining among the gardens on March 1, the night before the Show opens to the public. On Saturday, March 2, the musical group “The Beat Tells” will bring a ‘60s vibe to the dance floor at Flowers After Hours, the Show’s opening night dance party. Each day, guests are invited to enhance their Flower Show visit with popular experiences, including Early Morning Tours, Garden Tea, Butterflies Live, and to create their own floral crown or tie-dyed planter in the Make & Take.
The Flower Show is a mecca for plant lovers who enter their perfectly groomed entries in the renowned Hamilton Horticourt. Their contributions to the Show, together with thousands of volunteers, make the Philadelphia Flower Show an attraction without peer. These efforts and ticket proceeds support the PHS mission to connect people with horticulture and together create beautiful, healthy and sustainable communities.
