Flower show's focus on water lets visitors dive into spring


PHILADELPHIA — As the East Coast continues its slog through chilly temperatures and general winter dreariness, the Philadelphia Flower Show offers a colorful sneak peek into warmer, longer days.

This year, visitors can dive into spring at the "Wonders of Water" themed show, which runs from March 3 to March 11.

The annual floral extravaganza promises to "celebrate the beauty and life-sustaining interplay of horticulture and water."

Some of the top floral designers in the country will converge on the Pennsylvania Convention Center, transforming it into a mix of rainforests, woodlands and arid landscapes.

Guests will enter the show under a canopy of exotic flowers and come face-to-face with a multi-level, bamboo waterfall.

The show will also explore the innovative ways green infrastructure is used to protect and conserve water sources.
