While there are many wonderful and memorable details that accompany the cold of winter – warm family gatherings around a fire, hot chocolate, hearty stews – everyone has their limit. And just when the winter doldrums might have you desperately craving a very much absent vibrant burst of floral color from the landscaped Main Line garden… enter majestic landscapes at the 2016 Philadelphia Flower Show.
From March 5-13 of 2016, you can satiate yourself with vivid color and saturate yourself in breathtaking displays, stunning walkways, brilliant artistic structures and professionally hosted workshops – all enabling you to hang on till seasonal springtime color starts to appear in the natural environment.
The Philadelphia Flower Show 2016 Show theme is entitled “Explore America” and it is all about celebrating a century of the National Park Service. The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and the National Park Service share important common goals including a commitment to “…introduce new generations to the beauty of nature, to be good stewards of our environment, to honor the contributions of individuals to our history, and to build vibrant communities…”.
How will master landscapers and floral architects capture the grandeur of Yosemite, Shenandoah, Acadia, Yellowstone and many other beloved national parks and majestic landscapes at the 2016 Philadelphia Flower Show? One can only imagine!
As Philadelphia Horticultural Society chief of shows and events Sam Lemheney has predicted, the acclaimed annual botanical exhibition will be “an extraordinary show.” Here are some of the expected details:
- From March 5 through 13, 2016 the Pennsylvania Convention Center will be transformed into a veritable paradise of magnificent venues to accommodate variations on the main theme.
- Guests can meander through the acres upon acres of trails and displays designed to evoke greater knowledge and appreciation for these wonderful parks and period pieces.
- In addition to the visual inspiration, there will be enough live music, dining options, play areas and shopping to fill entire days and make those winter blues fade far into the background.
So if you are interested in having your annual Philadelphia Flower Show expectations fulfilled in an explosion of color, mark your calendars to go see the majestic landscapes at the 2016 Show! It will be unforgettable!
