What do you think of this year’s FlowerShow? Tell us in the comments below.

This year’s theme is “Aloha” and features flowers and plant life from the islands of Hawaii. Tikis, tattoo art and surfboards are common, but hisbiscus flowers, irises and especially orchids splash the exhibits with vibrant colors that conjure thoughts of a tropical summer.

Recent themes have included “Springtime in Paris,” “Passport to the World,” and “Bella Italia.” Thinking of shows past, how does this year stack up, in your opinion?
