The Garden Club of Houston and River Oaks Garden Club presented the first Florescence at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, in 1995. Since then, Florescence has been held biennially in the spring at the Museum. Florescence is a Major Flower Show, accredited by The Garden Club of America, a status it was accorded at its inception in 1995. Every Florescence incorporates several classes of Floral Design, Botanical Arts, Horticultural Specimens, Horticultural Design, Photography and Needle Arts. Talented designers, gardeners and artists from The Garden Club of America member clubs may enter or exhibit at this show, and it is open to the public to enjoy. There are also special exhibits by invitation and a conservation exhibit that relates to the show theme.
Florescence: Time is scheduled for April 16-17, 2019 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
