Automaker to Celebrate the Joy that Flowers Spark via “The Garden Electric” Theme

Subaru of America, Inc. today announced it will return as the exclusive sponsor for the 2023 Philadelphia Flower Show on March 4-12. As a longtime partner of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS), 2023 will be the automaker’s 22nd consecutive year as sponsor.

Returning to the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is the largest and longest-running horticultural event in the United States. This year’s theme, “The Garden Electric” captures the spark of joy experienced while giving or receiving flowers. 

“Each year, we look forward to the Philadelphia Flower Show as a moment where people from around the country and from all backgrounds can come together to experience the joy that flowers bring to our planet and our lives,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America, Inc. “We encourage all visitors to immerse themselves in the beauty of the exhibits and take the time to learn new ways to cultivate healthy plant life in their own communities.”

As the exclusive sponsor, Subaru will host exhibits that bring to life the five pillars of the Subaru Love Promise: Earth, Care, Help, Learning, and Pets. Subaru vehicles, including the all-new Subaru Solterra EV (electric vehicle) and the Subaru Forester Wilderness will be displayed in the main exhibit and the hallway exhibit, respectively.

Throughout the show, the automaker will host guest speakers to educate and entertain visitors on sustainable gardening. Speakers include Joe Lamp’l, Emmy award-winning host of PBS’s Growing a Greener World, as well as experts from The National Wildlife Federation and Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

Returning in 2023 are interactive gardening workshops hosted by the Official Botanical Artist of the GRAMMY® Awards, Tu Bloom. Guests will have the opportunity to create personal potted displays at these beloved “Potting Parties,” with a chance to win gardening tools to bring their newfound hobby home.
