Don’t miss the show creating color from above, open from March 13, 2021, through April 2021. Signature displays by Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden, One Schenley Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at a show with a Canopy of Color. Baskets and designs above the flowerbeds will create a world of color waiting to be explored. With whimsical elements suspended in the air and tall blooming trees creating color overhead, guests are encouraged to look up and look forward to this season of renewal.

  • Delight at tens of thousands of spring blooms, including hydrangea, petunias, daffodils, tulips, hyacinths and more, displayed both in the signature beds and suspended from above

  • Marvel as rain curtains cast April showers in the Sunken Garden and stroll beneath 100 colorful umbrellas

  • Twirl your way through the South Conservatory where a motorized windmill spins above a bed of tulips, daffodils and more planted in a pinwheel pattern

  • Listen for the peaceful soundtrack of yellow bamboo wind chimes swaying in the breeze

  • Wander beneath a blue sky of hanging baskets and see a family of topiary bears flying kites in Palm Court

  • Stimulate your senses by breathing in the fresh spring scents of fragrant hyacinths and tulips

  • Keep an eye out for striped squill (Puschkinia libanotica), a dainty white flower with blue stripes brand-new to Phipps’ Spring Flower Show
