2019 Philadelphia Flower Show

Thursday, March 7

The theme of the 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show is “Flower Power.” It explains how a single flower can influence a person’s life forever! Believe it or not, flowers have the power to overshadow our lives in ways we never thought possible.

There will be more than 10 acres of landscapes and gardens that will illustrate how this can be true. A highlight of the show this year will be the FTD World Cup 2019 floral design competition. The World Cup is one of the highest honors a person can receive in the flower industry. Designers from more than 30 countries will present the most fabulous floral creations from around the world.

Lunch will be on your own. Sample from the plentiful food vendors at the Pennsylvania Convention Center or walk across the street to the Historic Reading Terminal Market, where selections range from Philly Cheese Steaks to homebaked Amish goodies.

As in years past, garden shoppers will be thrilled with the more than 180 dealers selling everything from garden furniture to unique plants and flowers. Horticulture, artistic culinary lectures and demonstrations by world-class experts are all free to show visitors.

The 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show promises to be both breathtaking and inspiring. Sign up early to explore the world’s greatest flower show with the best, most celebrated growers and designers.
