It’s been 100 years since America entrusted the National Park Service with our 408 treasured national parks. Inspired by the theme “Explore America,” this year’s Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Philadelphia Flower Show — the nation's largest and longest-running horticultural event since 1829 — celebrates the Park Service’s centennial.

March 5th-13th
This land is your land...come and explore it!
Climb a mountain, ford a stream, hike trails, and pitch camp at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Throughout 10 acres in the main hall and another 20 acres in the adjacent areas, the country’s most iconic landscapes surround visitors — including a rainbow of wildflowers, desert blooms, coastal flora, verdant meadows, fragrant pinelands and ancient redwoods.

260,000 people will tour park-inspired displays honoring Acadia, Cape Cod, Valley Forge, Shenandoah, Yellowstone, Yosemite and many more.

Mother Nature's Gonna Cast A Spell on You!

No fake flowers or plants are allowed - and from the smallest bulbs to the largest trees everything is blooming at the same time.  It's like stepping into a painting where everything suddenly bursts into living, breathing color.
