Philadelphia Flower Show (2-Day)
Riviera Holiday is this year’s theme for the 2020 show. Inspired by the world’s exotic Mediterranean gardens, the 2020 Philadelphia Flower Show invites you to fall in love with gardening all over again. As you enter the Show, groves of Citrus trees lead the way providing a lush dramatic promenade to the sunshine drenched landscape ahead. Breathe in fragrant waves of lavender inspired by the terraced gardens of Monaco. Drifts of purple and white spiked salvia, specimen succulents and, an intoxicating variety of scented geraniums, roses, rosemary and sage create a stunning mosaic that is at once picturesque and charming. Walk the esplanade of flowering arches. Become enraptured by the delightful dimension of Show gardens and dramatic accents that rise in soft meadows of horticultural perfection. Explore the allure and extraordinary plant palette of some of the world’s captivating coastal regions. Don’t miss out on this incredible event which is a sell out every year!
