Your Chicago Florist
Everyone knows Chicago as the city of the Bears, Cubs, and Bulls. The city of Michael Jordan and Mike Ditka. Abraham Lincoln and Oprah Winfrey. But Chicago has a long history with flowers. Al Capone and the Belushi brothers. Harrison Ford was born in Chicago, as was Robin Williams. But Chicago also has a long history with flowers.
The City in a Garden
You've heard Chicago called the Windy City but it has another nickname. Urbs in Horto (Latin for “city in a garden”). Chicago loves its flowers. The Chicago Flower & Garden Show®’s roots date back to at least 1847. It began as a showcase for prized fruits and flowers organized by the Chicago Horticultural Society. It quickly became a hit and evolved over the years into a modern exhibition that attracts over 40,000 visitors every year. The Chicago Botanic Garden, in Glencoe, Illinois, offers visitors 385 acres of lush terrain and garden space with over a million varieties of plants, trees, and flowers.
