An Invite to All from Ontario’s Niagara Parks Commission
Posted May 3rd, 2017 on Niagara At Large
Niagara Falls, Ontario –Take in the dazzling sight of giant floral displays bursting with the colours of spring. Among this year’s features are enormous hanging baskets – some over five feet wide, overflowing with colourful hydrangeas.
A seasonal specialty, the annual Hydrangea Display at the Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse will run from Saturday, May 6 through to Friday, June 2.
In addition, forced Foxglove and Delphinium will complete the spectacular setting of blues, pinks and whites within the Showhouse. The Hydrangea Show will run until early June, when staff will begin working on the next popular display: Regal Geraniums.
A visit to the Floral Showhouse would not be complete without a stroll through the Life on Display exhibit, located just outside. Repurposed vintage pieces acquired from Durham Region’s former Cullen Miniature Village collection interpret cultivated life in Ontario over the past 150 years. As you visit the outdoor installation, enjoy the fragrant blossoms and extravagant beauty of the magnolia trees and tulips that surround the Floral Showhouse.
