Program #17BT10

The world’s longest running (since 1829) and largest indoor flower show! Experience the magic as the 189th PHS Philadelphia Flower Show celebrates “Wonders of Water” at the Philadelphia Convention Center. The 2018 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show will celebrate the beauty and life-sustaining interplay of horticulture and water. America’s leading floral and garden designer will create tropical jungles, temperate forests, native woodlands and arid landscapes, showcasing the astounding plants that thrive in each environment, from exquisite orchids and flowering vines to luminescent desert blooms. Count on lots of fountains, ponds and other water features, plus rain gardens that reflect PHS’ ongoing work with the Philadelphia Water Department to increase green, stormwater-absorbing spaces across the city! Visitors are also treated to live entertainment, culinary demonstrations, workshops, and lectures by experts. The “marketplace” has over 180 vendors of garden furniture and tools, hand crafted jewelry, unique plants and cut flowers. Bring your camera and join in on an incredible Philadelphia tradition! Lunch is on your own, inside the show or outside restaurants within walking distance are your options. Dress in comfortable shoes and layers as the show floor can get a bit chilly. Includes show entrance ticket, bus transportation and driver’s gratuity.
