WASHINGTON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
Profile America — Thursday, March 6th. The Philadelphia Flower Show — the largest such indoor event in the world — winds up this weekend. Some 265,000 visitors are expected to have attended by the time the show closes on Sunday. The Philadelphia show started in 1829 and now covers 33 acres.

To aid them, across America, there are nearly 16,000 flower, nursery stock, garden center and farm supply retailers, doing nearly $31 billion of business annually.
