The exhibitors of the Philadelphia International Flower Show are in fact artists. They take great pride in knowing how to use the art of temperature and lighting controls to make flowers, trees and shrubs bloom in March for this beautiful event. It is a true talent these designers have maintained and it is known around the world and it makes the flower show what it is today.
Featured displays will highlight:
- Opulent Paris, a time of Victorian glamour.
- Romantic Paris, tête-à-tête down the Seine.
- Gourmet Paris, amid rooftop and edible gardens.
- Artists’ Paris, from canvas to landscape.
- Underground Paris, a catacomb of avant-garde art.
- Timeless Paris, courtyards and cafes form a Parisian paradise.
