Detroit -

Sunday was the 47th Annual Flower Day at the Eastern Market -- one of the largest flower shows in the country  -- and it attracted large crowds, drawn by more than 15 acres of annuals, perennials, foliage, shrubbery, trees exotics, tropical plants, flats, hanging baskets and more available for purchase.

More than 200 flower growers from Michigan, Canada and neighboring states filled the market with their colorful array of offerings.

Gary Dinser of Dinser's Greenhouse in Novi said he was impressed with the turnout Sunday.

"Last year was pretty good, even with the bad weather, but this year is phenomenal. There's a lot of people here. I didn't expect this many,"Dinser said.

The Dinser Greenhouse brought about 500 hanging baskets to Flower Day, which ran from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by 2 p.m. they were nearly all sold.

Sandy Schultz is a regular visitor to Flower Day. She said it is a traditional fun event.

"It's bigger and better every year and the people are very friendly and nice, and I see no reason why you should not come down and enjoy a day in Detroit," Schultz said.

Many of the visitors to the Flower Day at Eastern Market remarked how they were impressed with the wide variety of flowers available for purchase this year.
