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