The Flower Show never disappoints. The 2018 Flower Show, with the theme Wonder of Water, will be amazing and inspiring as always. This year, the beauty and life-sustaining interplay of horticulture and water will be on display. Visitors can stroll through multiple environments created by America’s leading garden designers. From the beginning, guests will be transported to other worlds. The Entrance Garden is inspired by the magnificent rain forests with its canopy of lush greenery, vines, towering trees and colorful flowers. With an ever shifting rain curtain,  fish ponds and misting pools, a “suspended” rope bridge and a modernistic 25′ waterfall, visitors’ senses will be totally immersed in the rainforest environment. The role of water in sustaining our environment will be evident as guests wander through the various displays. Other ecosystems include Native Woodlands, Arid Landscapes and Temperate Forests. Plants that thrive in each climate will be showcased from orchids, to flowering vines and desert blooms.

In addition to the Flower Show displays, there are many special events and experiences to enjoy. Butterflies Live!  is an interactive and educational exhibit. There are early morning tours and photographer tours, a Garden Tea and a Teddy Bear Tea. There are also a Flower Show Shop and a Gardener’s Studio, a Preview Gala and an After Hours Disco. More information about all of these special events can be found on the Philadelphia Flower Show website.
