Sam Lemheney,  returns to discuss the 2022 Philadelphia Flower Show

 

Sam Lemheney, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Chief of Shows and Events, returns to discuss the 2022 Philadelphia Flower Show, the nation’s biggest and the world’s longest running flower exhibition, at South Philadelphia’s Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park (FDR Park) from June 11 through June 19.

He described this year’s show, ‘In Full Bloom’ and how it symbolizes a return to ‘good health’ for the community and PHS programs.  He spoke of this year’s features,  exhibits from an international group of award-winning designers, the beloved Butterfly Exhibit, The Garden for the Greater Good, reflecting horticulture’s role in positive social and environmental change, a ‘Pride Month’ display from the Philadelphia based David Rubin Land Collective, the Marketplace with vendors and plant sales, Artisan Row with flower and plant creations and more children’s activities, including an all-new Kids Cocoon & Play Space is an interactive outdoor experience for families and children — and that each one of us can harness that power.  He gave the dining options for this year’s show, with a new restaurant and more stands throughout the space and the special events including the annual Saturday dance party after show hours. 

We discussed the importance of the Flower Show, to tourism and our hospitality economy, and also to the ongoing projects of PHS, vacant lot removals, tree planting, greenspace design and maintenance, employment programs for the recently incarcerated, fresh produce programs for families and educational classroom projects.  We also discussed the continuing benefits to FDR Park, in permanent hardscape and water projects.  

Finally, we discussed Membership in PHS and the benefits, tickets, seeing the show on ‘Members’ Day’ before it opens to the public, discounts at the show and programs throughout the year.  

Information about PHS, membership, and Flower Show tickets are available online at PHSonline.org
