The 2017 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, Holland: Flowering the World, will celebrate the beauty and ingenuity of Dutch culture, from vivid flower fields to innovative eco-design, from March 11 to 19 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Highlights include a World Market, the Garden Spa and Butterflies Live, where more than 1,000 butterflies of 20 exotic and American species interact with guests. Expert advice is found throughout the show to answer gardening questions.
No other country is as well known for its floral industry as the Netherlands, which fills the world with color. The Philadelphia Flower Show, which supports the transformative greening and beautification work of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, will transport guests to the rainbow landscapes of tulips, hyacinths and daffodils and the cut-flower and bulb markets that have shaped Dutch history. America’s premier floral and garden designers will celebrate facets of Holland’s culture throughout 10 acres of exhibition halls.
Talking about the innovation of eco-domes and the Dutch Wave movement, which takes a natural and sustainable approach to landscaping, leading designers from Holland, including Nico Wissing, Bart Hoes, Bart Bresser and Carrie Preston will share their extraordinary floral and garden styles in major exhibits.
