The PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is a stunning and educational look at the world of floral design and gardening. Annually, the event features breathtaking displays by the world’s premier floral and landscape designers. United by Flowers is a celebration of the community that blooms each Spring at the annual PHS Philadelphia Flower Show – a moment when hundreds of thousands from the region, East Coast, and the world share in a week-long magnification of the transformative power of gardening. In this fragmented world of consistently changing landscapes, everyone who participates – from exhibitors and competitors to artisans and guests – brings their passion and enthusiasm to the Pennsylvania Convention Center to co-create this unique event that proudly puts this vibrant and colorful collective on display.
