With the Philadelphia Flower Show less than one month away, the Philadelphia Horticultural Society (PHS) has started to reveal bits and pieces of what to expect at the annual event.
One of the displays that always draws the most excitement and awe is the Flower Show’s Entrance Garden. And based on recently revealed renderings, this year’s entrance will be quite the spectacle. Designed by PHS, the entrance garden will feature a staggering 30,000 blooms, a brick bridge, three windmills, and a floating canopy of flowers.
The floating canopy will be the first of its kind for the Philadelphia Flower Show, according to the PHS announcement. When visitors enter the show, they’ll be able to walk underneath more than 6,000 fresh and dried flowers that will be hanging from multi-colored strings.
In designing the Entrance Garden, PHS designer Seth Pearsoll said the goal was to mimic the modern designers in the Netherlands, “who carefully plant a matrix of different flowers to create a controlled chaos.”
If the renderings are any indication, this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show is going to be an incredibly colorful experience. It runs from March 11 to 19 at the Philadelphia Convention Center.
