About Us

Mission Statement:

The Southeastern Horticultural Society (SHS) is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to promoting the knowledge, art and enjoyment of horticulture throughout the Southeastern United States.

Our friends and supporters share our commitment to creating sustainable communities by caring for our natural environments. We celebrate the important role of plants in our lives by working in partnership with individuals and organizations throughout the southeast to support the art and science of plants. We are passionate in our commitment to bring horticultural conservation, excellence, enjoyment and beauty to people’s lives through educational activities.  The Southeastern Horticultural Society formed in 2008, growing out of the annual Southeastern Flower Show, a truly premiere event attracting 20,000 attendees annually. The Southeastern Flower Show further promotes SHS’s mission of conservation and awareness of the natural environment through education, horticultural excellence, and artistic expression.
