  • Annual Hydrangea Show was installed to celebrate and showcase the work of the Niagara Parks Horticulture Team despite uncertainty around an opening date
  • While the Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse remains closed, those interested in viewing the show are invited to experience it virtually at niagaraparks.com/hydrangea

Niagara Falls, ON – The Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse has been transformed with over 350 Hydrangea plants in celebration of spring and the work of its talented Horticulture Team. Despite the Showhouse currently remaining closed to the public, the Annual Hydrangea Show can be enjoyed virtually at niagaraparks.com/hydrangea.

When planting and preparations began for the show several months ago, the goal was to deliver a spectacular floral exhibit that would serve to welcome both spring, and the opening of Niagara Parks for the 2021 season. With updated public health measures currently making in-person viewing impossible, the Niagara Parks Horticulture Team was faced with a dilemma. What to do with their greenhouses overflowing with beautiful flowers in full bloom.

“We all felt it was important to finish what we had started” said Charles Hunter, Director of Horticulture at Niagara Parks. “So much passion and work had gone into producing these plants and moving them into the Showhouse space for display is really a celebration of that. With this being the first show during our 75th anniversary year, the team took a lot of pride in putting it together. While we are hopeful the blooms will last until people are able to see them in person, we are looking forward to bringing the show to people virtually”.

Those interested in seeing the show virtually can do so via a variety of photos, videos and 360° experiences available at niagaraparks.com/hydrangea.
