“America the Beautiful” is the theme for the 2016 Northwest Flower and Garden Show as the 28th annual event celebrates the National Parks Service Centennial and famous American landmarks. Set for February 17-21 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, the show spotlights the theme in spectacular display gardens and a big line-up of feature attractions.

After months of preparation, over 20 Garden Creators will unveil the show’s amazing collection of display gardens. With the scent of flowers in the air, each creation is a blooming showcase of creativity and ingenuity offering take-away ideas for “at-home” gardening.
