As the nation’s largest and longest-running horticultural event, the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is a stunning look at the world of floral design and gardening. Annually, the event features breathtaking displays by the world’s premier floral and landscape designers.
For the first time in its nearly 200-year history, the Philadelphia Flower Show will take place outdoors in Philadelphia’s Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park, allowing for new creative expression and horticultural displays as well as social distancing and the health benefits of being outside. From June 5 – 13, 2021 “HABITAT: Nature’s Masterpiece” will provide a breathtaking kickoff to the summer growing season at this centrally located park featuring sweeping vistas and 15 acres of new displays and activities.
The Show’s theme will explore the beauty of life through nature’s kaleidoscopic lens. Visitors should be ready to see exceptional beauty, learn from a diverse line-up of designers and leading horticulturalists and enter a new gardener-centric experience that invites everyone at all skill levels to nurture a lifelong connection to plants and gardening.
Throughout the event, impressive landscapes and architecture abound. FDR Park, a registered historical district was built to the design of Olmsted Brothers, the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. and John Charles Olmsted in the early 20th century. With walkable pathways, majestic trees and breathtaking views, FDR Park is an inspiring venue that contributes to the splendor that the Flower Show is known for while also being accessible by mass transit, car, or motorcoach.
Public safety is a critical component for the upcoming Show and adherence to recommendations from the CDC and City/State health officials is paramount to Show planning. Timed and dated entry as well as cleaning and social distancing guidelines are part of the early plans. PHS will continue to work closely with health officials leading up to the Show with updated guidance available at PHSonline.org.
