The best in the business create floral arrangements and lush landscapes that uplift the Show theme.
























































































































































































































































































































































Each year Flower Show exhibitors, representing the best talents in the floral and landscaping fields, create full-scale displays that delight more than a quarter million visitors. Many of these exhibitors have spent decades perfecting their craft, which often includes forcing a great variety of plants into bloom in time for the Show. Exhibitors spend an average of 18 months preparing their displays. With only nine days to show off their talents, each company or organization must pull out all stops to be considered the very best.

air, it is here, in this magical place where the inspiration for
this garden was born and transformed into a home garden

colored pond surrounded by ancient trees and hills
morphing into pathways and steps. The closer you come,
the more they entice you to explore, stretching out their
branches and flattening their roots, shaping them into a
wooden stairway leading to the top-most part of the garden
where you enter a beautifully woven enclosure overlooking a
valley of complete splendor and peacefulness. While
daydreaming in the comfort of the soft day bed. something

Description: The Lion, the Witch & The Wardrobe
Evacuated to a country house set in the rolling English
countryside sheltered from Blitz-ridden London, a game
of hide and seek leads to a magical land where all is
not as it first seems. The garden draws on this English
country house, a peaceful refuge to which so many
children like Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter were sent
to safely live out WWII. However, this house is like no
other. A portal in an empty room leads to the magical
land of Narnia where, thanks to the White Witch, it is
always winter but never Christmas. The garden is
classically English with wide lawns and clipped hedges,
and a wealth of herbaceous planting gives way to a
garden pavilion. Inside this little space, the portal can
be glimpsed, its door ajar. Through this portal and creeping
around the side of the garden, Narnia, with its iconic gas
light where Lucy first met Mr. Tumnus, is held in winter,
which has lasted for over 100 years.

Description: Tarzan
Tarzan, a favorite for generations, was created by Edgar Rice
Burroughs in 1912. Since that time, the novels have been
adapted into television shows, comic books, animated
features, and more than 200 movies. The story begins with a
young couple who survived a shipwreck off the coast of
Africa. The husband built a home from the remnants of their
ship for his wife and young son. Sadly, the parents lost their
lives. The baby was found and raised by a family of apes,
who taught him how to survive in the wild and to
communicate with all the animals. Tarzan was later
discovered by an expedition, and he met and fell in love with
Jane. Returning to England, Tarzan claimed his rightful title
as Lord Greystoke and married Jane. After many experiences
around the world, they returned to his jungle home where
they lived with their family of Cheetah and Boy. With these
tales in mind, a lavish play place has been created for
children. The waterfall, pond, and garden of tropical plants
transports the young explorers to tree house adventures of
their own, complete with swinging ropes and Tarzan’s call of
the wild.

they live happily ever after. But what happens next? The fairy
tale can’t end there. We want to know more, like what does
Cinderella’s wedding gown look like? Does she wear the glass
slippers? Are the flowers over the top? Will Prince
Charming’s name be revealed on the invitation? The movie
may have ended, but this exhibit continues the fairy tale of
Cinderella. From elaborate sparkling glass to capture the
slipper to beautiful white and pink flowers designed in
exquisite arrangements, the exhibit creates a scene where
the glass slipper is left behind while entering the ceremony
and reception space where Cinderella and Prince Charming
get married. A slight “French” style will prevail throughout
this lush, rich scene.

Schaffer Designs
Location: Show Floor Hall B Center
Description: The Nightmare Before Christmas
Schaffer Designs is inspired by amusing but imaginatively
morbid fairytales. No one creates these macabre stories
better than those that are conjured from the deliciously
demented imagination of Tim Burton. “The Nightmare Before
Christmas” is surreal and expressionistic in its tale of Jack
Skellington, The Pumpkin King, and his search for a greater
meaning beyond the celebration of Halloween. After
discovering Christmas Town, Jack decides to kidnap Santa
and take the holiday to Halloween Town and make it his
own. This “Burton-esque” floral portrayal of the mystical
and dark wonderfulness of Giant Snakes, Evil Wreaths,
Monster Presents and other Creepy Creatures all create a
celebration of the macabre rather than a season to be jolly

Location: Show Floor Hall B Center
Description: Hollywood Heritage: Bank of America’s Century-Long Legacy
with the Motion Picture Industry
In 1908, a young man named Sol Lesser came to Bank of
Italy (later Bank of America) for a loan for his nickelodeon in
San Francisco. This began the long-term relationship
between Bank of America and the motion picture industry.
At a time when many banks considered film to be a risky
investment, Bank of America held a different opinion. In
1919, the bank provided a loan to film “The Kid,” directed
by and starring Charlie Chaplin. When Walt Disney couldn’t
get a loan to complete the first full-length animated film,
Bank of America stepped in and lent Disney $1.7 million to
finish “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” In 1939, when
David O. Selznick ran out of money filming “Gone with the
Wind,” Bank of America provided the funds to finish the
production. And in 1947, Bank of America financed one of
the first post-war films with an all-black cast to be shot at a
major movie studio. Bank of America went on to back Cecil
B. DeMille, Sam Goldwyn, Frank Capra, and Hal Roach, and
helped to finance film studios in their formative years. Bank
of America has financed such classics as “West Side Story,”
“Lawrence of Arabia,” and “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Today,
Bank of America continues to help make film history
through its clients.
