PHS Philadelphia Flower Show announces 2024 theme and new pricing model


The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has unveiled the theme of the 2024 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show: “United by Flowers.”

The 195th PHS Philadelphia Flower Show will be held March 2-10, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

United by Flowers celebrates the colorful community that comes together to share in their love of gardening, flowers, and plants, and the impact they make on our lives all year round.

The theme emphasizes the unity that blooms each spring at the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show – a moment when hundreds of thousands from the region, nation, and the world come together to experience the transformative power, stunning beauty, and joyfulness of gardening.

This year's theme honors this flower-filled world and all the unique people at the heart of the Flower Show—from trendsetting professional designers to amateur competitors who have been submitting plants for blue ribbons for decades, from fashionistas in floral attire looking for the ultimate selfie, to generations of families and crowds of friends who make it an annual tradition that ushers in the spring season.

"In a world where loneliness has become an epidemic, the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show brings people together to connect over their shared love of gardening and floral beauty. It is a place where magic happens, and where people from all walks of life come together as one. This growing community represents the essence of ‘United by Flowers,’" said Seth Pearsoll, vice president and creative director of PHS.

Now in its 195th year, the award-winning PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is a world-renowned gardening event and PHS’s main fundraiser, known for its stunning visual displays, world-class plant competitions, family activities, artisanal crafts, educational offerings, and curated shopping.
