(Sandwich, MA) Seventeen regional garden clubs from Cape Cod and the South Shore will showcase Heritage Museums & Gardens' 50th anniversary July 16-18 with a flower show at Heritage. Visitors will be treated to more than 100 floral designs, which will interpret some of Heritage's attractions, such as the Flume Fountain, the Cape Cod Hydrangea Society Garden, and the cultural attraction's new 2019 feature, the "Garden of the Senses." There will also be a stunning exhibition of hundreds of horticultural specimens, including Hydrangea, perennial, annual, and hanging garden entries. A photography division will feature both black and white and color entries framing Cape Cod's natural beauty.

"We are very excited to be showcasing Heritage during the organization's special landmark summer season," says Susan Dewey of Centerville, show chairman, and vice-president of the Osterville Garden Club. 'This show—which will feature the talents and expertise of dozens of National Garden Club members in a beautiful venue—offers visitors the chance to see and learn about some gorgeous, top tier floral designs and horticultural specimens as well as the chance to see Heritage at its natural best."

Dewey explains that the flower show, which is offered by the National Garden Club's Southeastern Division, will be in Heritage's Heald Center and in a large adjoining tent on the grounds. Show hours will be Tuesday, July 16, 1 p.m. to 5:00, Wednesday, July 17 and Thursday, July 18, 10 a.m. to 5:00. Entrance to the show will be free with museum admission.
