News: GCA Flower Shows See What’s Trending in 2020


February 18, 2020

GCA flower shows will be held across the country.

With spring just around the corner, the flower show season is about to begin. The Garden Club of America’s flower shows are unique educational forums that showcase an area’s distinct horticultural specimens, traditional and contemporary floral designs, photography, and the creative arts. Conservation and educational exhibits are often included to increase the visitor’s awareness about community-related environmental issues.  

“Each community’s needs are unique,” says GCA national Flower Show Committee Chairman Crissy Cherry, “Disseminating information is prioritized at GCA flower shows, whether it is information on floral design or organic and sustainable gardening, steps to maintaining a healthy yard, or best practices for choosing native plants that are appropriate to one’s community.” 

In 2020, from February through November, GCA flower shows will be held across the country and will highlight the GCA’s purpose of stimulating the knowledge and love of gardening and restoring, improving, and protecting the quality of the environment through educational programs.

All GCA flower shows are free and open to the public. Upcoming shows include:
