From April 24-27, 2014, South Coast Plaza mall was the home of the 25th Annual Southern California Spring Garden Show. The four-day show featured more than 70 specialty garden vendors offering everything from exotic plants to the latest garden accessories; competition display gardens created by landscape architects, designers and students; garden seminars and book signings; garden projects, crafts and storytellers for kids; and an amazing floral centerpiece designed by Fiesta Parade Floats (a Rose Parade Float creator). The 20-foot-tall floral centerpiece featured California Golden Poppies and Southern California birds convening around a birdbath in a garden. The sculpture was decorated entirely with plant materials, including flower petals, seaweed, coconut, onion and seeds. Speakers included John Gidding, an architect, interior designer and HGTV's Curb Appeal co-host; Johanna Silver, Associate Garden Editor at Sunset magazine; and Pat Welsh, an Emmy award-winning garden writer and author.
Here are 19 spectacular sights of this past weekend's 25th Annual Southern California Spring Garden Show.
