Summer Flower Show 2016: PlayGardens
April 30 – Oct. 2, 2016
For this unique show, Phipps came alive with the colors of summer fun, and each room offered interactive features, vintage garden décor and more. From a Palm Court filled with historic statuary to a series of Rube Goldberg-inspired machines in our Serpentine Room and a playable theremin paired with an Italian arbor in our East Room, surprises awaited around every corner — and in June, Romero the Corpse Flower added to the festivities by making his second big bloom in under three years.
