CAMDEN, N.J., March 22, 2022 /CSRwire/ – Subaru of America, Inc. today announced that for the 21st consecutive year the automaker will return as the exclusive sponsor of the 2022 Philadelphia Flower Show, continuing a decades-long partnership with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS).
Building on the success of last year’s first outdoor show, the 2022 Philadelphia Flower Show will take place at FDR Park from June 11 to June 19, 2022. The event will feature new and returning displays across the 15-acre park in South Philadelphia for more than 200,000 expected attendees.
“For more than two decades, Subaru and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society have worked together to raise awareness of the beauty of sustaining a healthy environment by organizing the nation’s largest and longest-running horticultural show,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America, Inc. “Subaru remains committed to protecting and preserving the environment for future generations and we look forward to helping Flower Show visitors cultivate their own relationships with plant life while learning new ways to preserve it.”
This year’s show theme, “In Full Bloom,” invites visitors to explore the restorative and healing power of nature and plants while experiencing the benefits of gardening. The theme focuses on blending good health with sustainable garden practices to showcase how people can live a greener life. As the exclusive sponsor, Subaru will provide inspiration and education to attendees interested in learning new ways to incorporate sustainability in their lives.
The “Subaru Bloom Experience” exhibit will feature interactive gardening workshops hosted by the Official Botanical Artist of the GRAMMY® Awards, Tu Bloom. Bloom will lead nearly 2,500 attendees in the Subaru “Potting Party” demonstrations, which have become a Flower Show tradition. Attendees will be invited to create personal potted displays that attract valuable pollinators like bees and butterflies to their home garden.
