Cincinnati Flower Show, presented by Edyth and Carl Lindner, runs April 21- April 29 on a beautiful Lake Como, at Coney Island. It traditionally attracts more than 55,000 visitors from all over the country and abroad, and it is recognized as one of the country’s top events of the year. It is the only show in North America to ever receive the official endorsement of Great Britain’s Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and the only show in the world to feature awards from both the RHS and the American Horticultural Society. In celebration of its 18 years of unparalleled horticultural success, the Cincinnati Horticultural Society looks into the future with this year’s new theme, “Play in the Dirt.”


In all, the show will feature over 40 exhibits, presenting outdoor gardens, such as landscaping, hedging ponds, professional floristry and dramatic table settings. Visitors will be able to view and to experience the different displays and to participate in various events during the show. In addition, there will be panel of horticultural experts available for the “Askflower_a.jpg the Experts” program that will answer questions about the challenges or goals you face in your personal garden. Visitors will find inspiration among the myriad of gardens, plants and floral arrangements. Many new varieties of plants will fast become the new favorites for your own garden, front yard or patio. Designs form miniatures to grand landscapes.
