Time Began in a Garden: A Centennial Celebration

Filoli is proud to once again present its annual Flower Show on June 1-4, 2017. This yearís theme, Time Began in a Garden: A Centennial Celebration, celebrates Filoliís beautiful estate gardens and all that transpired in and around these gardens during the last 100 years.

Floral designers, both professional and amateur, are invited to contribute their unique designs inspired by Filoli or other iconic gardens, whether ancient, modern, or imaginary, whose qualities have inspired enjoyment, beauty and inspiration over this past century. Let history and your imagination help create a floral arrangement, table setting, garden vignette, fairy garden, or container arrangement for display either inside the house or outside in the gardens.

Professional designers, retailers, experienced amateur flower arrangers and garden club members are encouraged to participate in this yearís show. We expect many return as well as new exhibitors and sites will be reserved on a first come, first served basis.

In addition to individual entries, we encourage displays of specialized plant specimens by horticultural societies. These collections are always of great interest to Filoli visitors. This year we especially welcome California native plants and hybrids developed during the last century.

Amateur arrangers, new to the show, are invited to attend an information and site selection meeting on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. The Flower Show format and important updated guidelines will be discussed. Arrangers who have not already done so may select their site location at that time. To reserve a space for this meeting please email flowershow@filoli.org.
