Greenhouse growers, landscapers, garden center operators, nurserymen and plant enthusiasts are invited to participate in the annual Garden Plant Showcase at Michigan State University.
The trial gardens include annuals, perennials, vegetables, and now, native plants.
In addition to walking through the trial gardens, visitors will hear presentations from MSU faculty and staff about top-performing plants. New for 2010, representatives from many of the major breeding companies, including Ball Horticultural Co., Benary, Danziger, Dömmen, Floranova, Paul Ecke Ranch, Plug Connection, Proven Winners and Sakata, will present highlights of some of their favorite new introductions and proven performers.
