Across ten acres of the Show floor, the world’s leading floral and garden designers will explore how flowers convey a wide range of emotions and messages in a universal language that transcends cultures and borders. Stunning landscapes, imaginative gardens, and breathtaking floral displays will interpret flowers’ power to inspire, decorate, style, and enrich our lives. Through imaginative exhibits, you will see ideas like community, healing, peace, transformation, and hope brought to life in surprising, vibrant ways.
