Which is the most popular death flower in Philadelphia?
The City of Philadelphia has had its fair share of death flower transplants over the years, but none more so than the one which opened at the City Hall fountain last week.
In addition to its popularity as a flower, the Philadelphia flower has also been the subject of a long-running battle between the City and the flower’s owner, the Philadephians.
On April 6, 2013, the flower was transferred to the Philadelphians in exchange for $50,000.
The city sued the flower, saying the flower owner’s efforts to have the flower removed were “in violation of the city’s Planting, Licensing, and Planting Management Act.”
But after a lengthy legal battle, a judge agreed to let the plant remain in the city.
The city has since moved the flower to a location within the city that has a water fountain.
The Flower Show’s Philadelpian, Paul Mays, who has been hosting the flower show for more than 30 years, said that while the show’s goal is to educate people on the plant’s benefits, its focus has always been on the city itself.
“We have no affiliation with the city, and we’re not even affiliated with the Flower Show,” Mays said.
“We’re not affiliated with any of the organizations that put on the show.”
He said he hopes to continue hosting the show with the help of the Philadanians, even if it means moving the flower into a new location.
“I want people to see that we have a flower that is truly beautiful, and that there is hope in the world,” he said.
