Entering the 2012 Philadelphia International Flower Show





Hawaii: Islands of Aloha
The tranquil winds of paradise will waft through Philadelphia and guide visitors to the Pennsylvania Convention Center for this year’s presentation, “Hawaii: Islands of Aloha.”


Guests will be welcomed to the Hawaiian Islands through dynamic projections of crashing waves and one of the largest displays of white orchids and anthuriums ever assembled.


Waldor Orchids will bring decades of floral expertise to the creation of the central feature which will showcase over 2,000 orchids -- from dendrobiums to vandas and all genera in between. Walter Off of Waldor Orchids has traveled to Hawaii for several weeks to personally oversee the selection and timing of all of the flowering plants that will be acclimated for the Show.




Once visitors pass through the orchid wave, a variety of native and tropical plants will rise in a living wall. Towering palms, bamboo, and a tropical plant canopy will immerse visitors in the Hawaiian rainforest. A 25-foot-high waterfall will splash down into Pele’s Garden, an island of exotic flowers and plants where performers will conjure volcanic flames and the Fire Goddess.



This entrance to the show was pretty amazing. I am so glad these photos came out well for you to see, just like as if you were there in person!!! There will be more coverage of the flower show to come!!!

Are orchids edible? Are they indigenous to NYC? Who cares, I hope you win.
