CAMDEN, NJ, January 25, 2019 /3BL Media/ - Today, Subaru of America, Inc. has announced that, for the 18th year in a row, it will serve as the premier sponsor of the Philadelphia Flower Show. This annual show is produced by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) and will run from March 2nd to the 10th. The nation's largest and longest-running horticultural event will return to Philadelphia with this year’s theme honoring "Flower Power." The theme pays tribute to the enormous impact of flowers on people’s lives, as well as celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock music festival and the era of "Flower Power."
“We are extremely proud to continue our long-established sponsorship of the Philadelphia Flower Show for a landmark eighteenth year,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and Chief Executive Officer, Subaru of America, Inc. “We at Subaru deeply cherish supporting our community and the environment. Our relationship with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society reflects our mutual goal of educating consumers on the importance of maintaining our beautiful landscape and sharing sustainability practices that ensure we all can continue to enjoy these natural wonders.”
As the premier sponsor, Subaru will pay tribute to this year’s event by showcasing multiple exhibits that feature the brand’s most beloved vehicles. For the main exhibit, Subaru will feature Mid-Century Modern architecture and sustainable use of nature’s resources that elegantly provide shelter for the largest member of the Subaru lineup, the all-new, 2019 Subaru Ascent. At the exhibit, attendees can learn how rainwater is repurposed with the use of permeable turf joints to water Perennial plantings that provide a habitat for birds, butterflies and more. Attendees will also find a family vegetable garden blended beautifully with the perennials in this home garden display.
Subaru will also sponsor the following Philadelphia Flower Show exhibits and events:
