In late winter, a gardener’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of … the Philadelphia Flower Show.

Billed as the “oldest and largest indoor flower show in the world,” the annual harbinger of spring is scheduled for March 2-10 in the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.

Drawing more than 250,000 visitors annually, the 10-acre show features everything from large, elaborate landscaped displays to prize horticultural specimens entered by individual growers and clubs.

Show theme for 2019 is “Flower Power.”

A single-day ticket purchased on the website through March 1 is $34, or $29.95 for entry after 3 p.m. Price will be higher after that date or with purchase on-site at the box office.
