This year's theme: Where Art Meets Horticulture. According to the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, the 185th annual flower show celebrates "everyone from Michelangelo to Monet, Picasso to Pollock, and da Vinci to Dali." The show's exhibitors create their art using a palette of flowers, plants, and other gardening ornamentation.

Public hours for the flower show are:

  • Saturday, March 1 11:00 am - 9:00 pm
  • Sunday, March 2 8:00 am - 9:00 pm
