Audrey, Elizabeth, Marilyn, and Clark reigned supreme on the Silver Screen. In 2015, the Philadelphia Flower Show will hearken back to an era of glamour, style and grace in the movies.

Fountains, gardens and three grand chandeliers will explode in a riot of color and blooms around one of the Show’s most magical moments, a fabulous art deco marquee that pays homage to the glory days of the great movie houses.

Floral wonders will abound. Stop and smell the roses- Judy Garland, Barbara Streisand, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant, Betty White, Henry Fonda and Grace Kelly. For the first time ever, fragrant roses honoring legendary film stars will permeate the Show floor.

Join us on this amazing journey as our Show designers start to create movie magic in flower!
