(CNN) -- More than 300,000 people are expected to stop and smell the roses -- and tulips, begonias, gardenias, lilies, daisies and daffodils -- this week in the City of Brotherly Love.
The 1997 Philadelphia Flower Show runs from March 2 through March 9. A tradition since 1829, the event -- sponsored by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society -- is the largest indoor flower show in the world. Exhibitors from Belgium, Holland, England, Italy and Japan are scheduled to participate.
Dubbed "The Great Exchange: People, Places and Plants," this year's show focuses on how technology, such as the Internet and fax machines, has helped horticulturists share techniques with gardeners worldwide. Visitors also can attend lectures on topics from home landscaping to flower arranging.
Tickets are $14.50 for adults; $7.25 for children under 12.
