The Districts

The districts hero update

With its new outdoor venue, the Philadelphia Flower Show has been re-imagined to allow guests a more ‘curated’ experience in 2021 – this year, guests will have three distinct Districts, with beautiful horticulture, shopping, food and beverage, music, and interactive experiences combined in each District.

All levels of gardeners will find something new to explore within each District …while also enjoying the traditional beauty of the Flower Show in its open environment this summer. Let’s explore what each District has to offer!

Plant District

This District has been curated to attract all types of plant lovers! The area will feature a variety of plants that have been carefully arranged in the Show’s long-standing Hamilton Horticourt, showcasing hundreds of plants in their purest form by gardeners who have spent months priming their flora for just this event! Plant ‘galleries’ will allow guests to browse their favorites or explore new floral and plant varieties. Plant owners will be available to discuss their expertise in gardening. 

In addition to the food, beverage, and shopping opportunities in this District, gardeners will learn about the planting, growing, care and maintenance of plants from PHS experts and other plant-knowledgeable volunteers.


Garden District

See the ‘how to’ of gardening in the Garden District – with practical garden techniques, ongoing learning, and interaction with experts, gardeners at all levels will find something to enjoy! The Garden District will feature a number of unique experiences, such as Butterflies Live!, the PHS Gardeners Grove, the PHS Members’ Lounge, and more.

Within the Grove, gardeners will want to visit the PHS Gardeners Green, the educational section of the Flower Show where PHS experts and other gardening experts will safely hold informative sessions on a variety of topics in horticulture. A curated library for gardeners will be onsite in the PHS Members’ Lounge, as well as a shady outdoor area and café to reflect on your new plant knowledge. The PHS Shop is also featured within the Gardeners Grove, offering Show-special merchandise to celebrate this year’s theme.


Design District

As the largest district at the Show, the Design District has been curated for the floral enthusiast who wants to see all the horticultural pomp and circumstance that the Flower Show has represented for decades! The area features the largest displays of floral and landscape design connected to this year’s Flower Show theme, "Habitat: Nature’s Masterpiece."

Award-winning designers from all over the globe exhibit at the Flower Show, bringing the most current trends in landscape design, outdoor floral design, art combined with nature, and sustainability to guests. In addition to the food, beverage, and shopping opportunities within this District, guests can talk with the designers, view 360° displays on the grand lawn of FDR Park, take photos outdoors with the displays, and take in the beauty, creativity, and artistry of each exhibit.
