US (PA): Black women florists group blooms in the spotlight at the PHS Flower Show

When floral enthusiasts walk into the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show this week, somewhere amid the sweeping displays will be an exhibit showing barrels pouring streams of flowers into a foundation of colorful blossoms.

The exhibit represents a first for the Flower Show and for the creative force behind it. Black Girl Florists network is making its debut at the renowned floral showcase, and local designers, including a Chestnut Hill College graduate and a recent Germantown resident, are helping to install the historical display.

“This year’s theme is ‘The Garden Electric,’ so it’s going to be vibrant, integrate colors, and it will definitely be a flowing moment,” said Aliyah Ali, who is helping to create the exhibit and founded her Blossom’Li floral design business in a Germantown apartment.

Ali, who earned a business degree from Chestnut Hill College, will be part of a team that includes Black florists and designers from West Philadelphia and Lansdale, as well as the founder of the Black Girl Florists organization living in Atlanta.
