The Newport Flower Show is pleased to celebrate its 18th year as America’s premier summer flower show. Themed Jade: Eastern Obsessions, the Newport Flower Show will bring the mysteries of the East to the opening of Newport’s summer season, treating visitors to an exotic tour of Far Eastern traditions and beauty. Held on the historic grounds of Rosecliff in Newport, Rhode Island, the Show will kick-off the Newport social season with the much-anticipated Opening Night Cocktail Party on Friday, June 21 at 6:00 p.m., an Asian-inspired cocktail buffet, live music and dancing, a seaside supper, and other entertaining surprises. The show will continue through the weekend with themed floral exhibits, horticultural entries, garden designs, photography, and children’s programs, all staged throughout the elegant reception rooms of Rosecliff, its oceanfront terrace and lawn. The weekend will also feature two special luncheon lectures presented by inspirational floral designer Hitomi Gilliam and landscape architect Harriet Henderson.
The Presenting Sponsor of the 2013 Newport Flower Show is Bartlett Tree Experts and all proceeds benefit The Preservation Society of Newport County.
