Exhibition Overview

The Garden Club of Honolulu brings its artistry to the museum. This competitive must-see flower and horticultural show happens only every three years, and is one of only three Garden Club of America major flower shows held across the country this year. For the first time, the show takes its inspiration from a museum exhibition—Doris Duke's Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape and Islamic Art. At the heart of Shangri La: The Flower Show are the spectacular floral design and horticultural exhibits that people line up to see—the creative, architectural arrangements and diversity of flora, from dynamic sprays of orchids to simple stately trees, are jaw-droppers. In addition, the show includes exhibits of photography, botanical jewelry and needlework, and the Mediterranean Courtyard will be transformed into a Persian garden.
