To celebrate Chicago, the Chicago Flower & Garden Show, presented by Mariano's, has a full slate of garden builders creating plans to develop gorgeous gardens interpreting "CHICAGO IS," the show's 2016 theme.

The Chicago Flower & Garden Show will take place March 12-20 at Navy Pier, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.

Among the show's offerings in 2016 will be "Mariano's Garden," an extension of the horticulture featured daily in Chicago-area Mariano's stores; Brookfield Zoo's garden, with topiary displays; and the Chicago Sculpture Exhibit, which will feature large-scale artwork from local artists.

There will also be tulip and hyacinth gardens, and expanded Kids Activity Garden, and "Aquascape," among other items.
