What will this year’s flower show look like? PHS offers an early peek


Artist renderings unveiled this month provide an early glimpse into what’s planned for the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s 2024 flower show.

Scheduled to run March 2-10 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the 2024 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show’s theme is “United by Flowers,” celebrating “the colorful community that comes together to share in their love of gardening, flowers and plants...”

The images depict activities geared toward young people and families, including a Kids Cocoon, where children can plant seedlings, read a story and take part in activities run by local partners, and a series of Potting Parties where people of all ages can hone their craft under the guidance of designer Tu Bloom, the official Botanical Artist of the Grammy Awards.

At the same Friday press conference that unveiled the renderings, the society announced additions to the lineup of new and returning exhibitors and events that’ll be part of the show’s 195th iteration.

“The 2024 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show will gather some of the most cutting-edge, renowned landscape architects, garden designers, horticulturists, and florists from around the world to design dozens of breathtaking exhibits...” the society said in a statement.

A full list of exhibitors, plus information about the show’s featured activities, events, tours and shopping options, is available at
