Flower show tidbits

• The Cincinnati Flower Show is the only flower show in North America to earn the endorsement of the Royal Horticultural Society of Great Britain.

• "Growing Together" is the theme as the 2003 show moves to a new location, Coney Island, with more than 5,000 parking spaces.

• New to the show this year are the Lake Como gardens with floating topiary swans, flower gardens and boats bursting with plant color. •

Also new: Charmin's Wildflower Fresh Pavilion. Included will be the Fragrance Zone, an 80-foot-long tunnel where guests will travel through a Citrus Zone, Herbal Zone, Exotic Tropical Zone, Floral Fantasia Zone and Wildflower Fresh Zone. At the end, visitors will test their noses in a Fragrance Challenge.

• Tiffany & Co. will design the spotlight table in the Dramatic Table Settings exhibit.
