Macy’s Flower Show 2019 – Journey to Paradisios

Every year Macy’s welcomes Spring with the annual Flower Show—a magnificent themed floral extravaganza that takes place in three flagship stores across the country. This spring, Macy’s Herald Square in New York City, Macy’s State Street in Chicago and Macy’s Union Square in San Francisco celebrate a more than 70-year floral tradition with Journey to Paradisios, Operation: Inspiration, an otherworldly realm of glorious blossoms, lush plant life and amazing flora where visitors experience what could exist in the great beyond.

For more than 70 years, Macy’s Flower Show has delighted generations of floral aficionados with over-the-top presentations of lavish gardens that showcase millions of live flowers, plants, and trees from around the globe. Native to many different landscapes, Macy’s Flower Show offers visitors a unique opportunity to enjoy these florals blooming in unison, despite their distinct climatic DNA.

Taking root in unexpected settings, such as store countertops, windows and specially designed architecture, including grand bridges, columns, and topiaries, Macy’s Flower Show is staged in distinct fashion at each of the three locations. The show is free to the public and open during regular show hours.

The 2019 Flower Show, Journey to Paradisios, is a space-inspired floral fantasy featuring marvelous celestial blooms. Transporting fans into a multi-dimensional world of space, adventure and discovery through flowers and eccentrically landscaped gardens, Journey to Paradisios celebrates the wonder and mystery of the cosmos.
