Robertson’s Wins Best in Show at the 2016 Philadelphia Flower Show

Robertson’s is proud to announce that our “Postcards from Arches” exhibit at the 2016 Philadelphia Flower Show has been awarded “Best in Show.” If you haven’t made it to the annual floral extravaganza yet – no worries! – there’s still time to plan your visit and buy your tickets online or at our Robertson’s Chestnut Hill location.

This year’s Flower Show theme is inspired by America’s National Parks and Robertson’s lead designer, Eric Schellack, jumped at the opportunity to explore Utah’s Arches National Park, a landscape of warm tones, textures and impressive spaces.

Postcard design

“Postcards from Arches” is inspired by the colors, textures and rhythms of the impossible stone structures found within Arches National Park, a contradictory blend of ruggedness and delicacy.   These natural monuments exist within a land of changing light and mood framed by incredible open space.   Each of the five vignettes is based upon a vintage postcard.  Each postcard’s image is a fragmented miniature of the genuine landscape and are here re-imagined and expanded in an attempt to restore them to a state of wonder and awe.”
