About the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show

The PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is the nation’s largest and longest-running horticultural event and features stunning displays by the region’s most talented horticulturists, plus floral and landscape designers. The Philadelphia Flower Show has been honored as the best event in the world by the International Festivals & Events Association.

Started in 1829 by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, today the Flower Show showcases the newest plant varieties, trending garden and design concepts, and the latest sustainable practices.

One of the most profound and lasting impacts of the Philadelphia Flower Show is its longstanding contribution of Show proceeds to support of PHS’s nationally recognized greening programs. These programs provide solutions to the transformation of vacant land; enable the planting of thousands of trees to improve the canopy across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware; provide training and encouragement to once-incarcerated citizens to become productive members of society; and replenish food banks with organic locally grown produce. The Flower Show is one of PHS’ main efforts to help achieve their vision of advancing the health and well-being of the Greater Philadelphia region. For more information, visit
