This year’s Flower Show celebrates Philadelphia as America’s Garden Capital.

With 37 public gardens located within 30 miles, the Greater Philadelphia region has more gardens in close proximity than anywhere else on the continent.

All 37 gardens will be in attendance within a group offering an exhibit booth and free garden passports for garden visitors to visit each garden.

The Show has been re-imagined with a new venue, date, and landscape, for a new, safe experience in beautiful, historic FDR Park, an inspiring venue that contributes to the splendor that the Flower Show is known for, while also being easily accessible by public transportation and car.

This year’s program will feature the most designers, gardens, and floral displays in the Show’s history, with over 75 unique installations for guests to see and interact with, spanning the 15-acre outdoor footprint full of exhibits, activities, and more open space.

A number of garden experts will be on hand during the Show to discuss their specific garden activities, seasonal plantings, special events, and all things gardening and horticulture with flower fans of all ages, which is perfect as summer is just beginning. 

The 2021 Philadelphia Flower Show is held at FDR Park, 1500 Pattison Ave, Philadelphia, PA from June 5-13, 2021. Follow the Show on social media with the hashtag #americasgardencapital.
