Flower Show Districts

This year’s Flower Show will feature three unique Districts that focus on the interests of gardening enthusiasts at all skill levels. Each District will have an integrated set of characteristics that include floral and plant displays; shopping; education; interactive experiences; and themed food and beverage options. The three Districts include:

  • Design District: the stunning centerpiece of the Show that provides guests with a 360° view of large-scale floral and landscape displays
  • Plant District: a showcase of plants at their peak of perfection
  • Garden District: the educational area of the Show where guests learn how to bring new gardening ideas to life at home; Potting Parties will be presented by Subaru in this area

In addition to the floral, plant, and landscape displays across the Showgrounds, other areas will engage gardeners during Show dates, including:

  • Gardeners’ Green: as a testament to a historic public commons area, the Gardener’s Greenspace will showcase beautiful, creative, sustainable, and practical approaches to enhancing everyday living through horticulture – from front yards, to kitchen gardens, edible landscaping, even rain gardens. Experts will be on hand to customize guest visits, answer questions, and share techniques and ideas with downloadable subject guides tailored to plant lovers’ needs.
  • PHS Members’ Lounge: this area will include curated selections from the PHS McLean Library for garden enthusiasts to enjoy
  • PHS Shop: the onsite destination for Show-specific merchandise
