Nineteenth-century American botanist (and a pioneer in scientific agriculture) Luther Burbank said, “Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful. They are sunshine, food, and medicine for the soul.” His affinity for all things floral is shared by many—especially the innovative designers behind the world’s most extravagant flower shows, which are making a triumphant return this summer.
The exhibits, which feature cascades of lilac and dahlias; Roman gazebos draped in roses, peonies, and gladiolus; and antique urns housing Victorian-inspired arrangements, are like living works of art. And after a canceled slew of carefully curated events in 2020, this year’s crop of talented designers—popping up from Philadelphia to Newport—is going all out.
