Plant Show Series

Plant Show Series

For serious gardeners and all plant lovers.

Plant shows are a wonderful opportunity to explore the many varieties of particular flower or plant and learn from local plant experts. Guests are delighted by the diversity of flowers and creative displays. Local plant societies partner for the shows and many feature workshops, demonstrations or tours.

Shows are interspersed throughout the year from January to October and focus on orchids, roses, daylilies, dahlias, bonsai and more. Whether guests are avid gardeners or just out for a glimpse of what Mother Nature has to offer, there's something for everyone during the various plant shows.
