Visit the America in Bloom Display Garden at the Philadelphia Flower Show
- February 28 - March 9, 2014.
America in Bloom will again have a beautiful 15 x 20' display garden in Exhibit Hall B at the Philadelphia Flower Show
. Located between the Gardener's Studio and the PHS/Meadowbrook store, it's easy to find. Our garden is designed to look like a town's gateway, filled with beautiful blooming plants. Nothing is more welcoming at a town’s entrance than an attractivelandscape that says, “You’ve arrived in a special place”. Flowers, shrubs, and bold foliage paired with significant artwork set expectations of a memorable visit and a great place to live. America in Bloom participating towns know that flowers aren’t just for backyards anymore. They're celebrating their communities in living color.
Many thanks to Greg Trahan of Longwood Gardens following designing the garden layout.
The show, produced by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) is the oldest and largest indoor flower show in the U.S. Last year, more than 260,000 people attended. This year's show promises to be the most design-focused and modern in its floral installations since the show's existence - balancing the avant-garde with down-to-earth advice for the home and garden.
We're so excited to have outstanding experts volunteering to create the design AIB's 2014 display garden. Jim Sutton, display designer of world famous Longwood Gardens and his team are helping us create an engaging design that will welcome and enchant guests.
Our display garden will showcase plants from Suntory and Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs. In addition, Schubert Nursery will be providing topiaries and ivy plants. Braun Horticulture will provide moss and decorative elements, and Walpole Woodworkers is supplying latticework that will be positioned in the center of the garden.
Several America in Bloom judges and board members will be present all week in the garden. Stop by and say hello.
Last year's exhibit won an award for "Best Achievement for Depicting Horticulture as a Way to Create Community".
