Spring Flower Show

Featuring Fantastical Flower Fairytales

Fairytale imageCLOSED FOR 2020

As spring approaches, most people are ready to get away from the long winter. This year's theme, Fantastical Flower Fairytales, makes it possible to get to places far beyond the mundane world into realms of fantasy and the imagination.

Storybook worlds are settings for luxurious floral displays, set in a dark and mysterious wood, a burning desert, or around a stone castle. Living treasure flows from chests, while peacocks wander among fountains and frogs hide in cool green bogs.

The ELEMENTS - Earth, Water, Air, and Fire work together to produce the abundant flower and lush foliage of flowers, grasses, ferns, shrubs, and trees, all on display in the light-filled Atrium. Show visitors will enjoy and an I-SPY activity (available at the show entrance), highlighting the ELEMENT related features in the show as part of Olbrich's 2020 annual theme.
