What's in Bloom at PHS?
PHS’s mission is to use horticulture to advance the health and well-being of the Greater Philadelphia region, which includes our work to provide free, beautiful green spaces for communities to gather. PHS oversees the beauty and care of more than 80 acres throughout Philadelphia! We are proud of our efforts to beautify our City for both residents and visitors alike.
Our green spaces are changed regularly, usually on a seasonal basis through Spring, Summer, and Fall. We've been asked what's in bloom so many times that we will now make selected plant lists available to download, share, or just enjoy. We look forward to your exploration of all our unique horticultural displays – either virtually or in person!
PHS maintains more than 80 acres of unique horticultural displays throughout Philadelphia.
Here are a just a few of PHS's plant spaces with location and plant lists below.
