Behind the Scenes with Prince of Persia

This year at the 2015 Philadelphia Flower Show we had the immense pleasure of working with international award-winning Malaysian designer Lim in Chong, known as "Inch,"  by staging his design for his exhibit. Prince of Persia was awarded a PHS Gold Medal - Landscape, The Philadelphia Trophy and was a People’s Choice Award-winner.
