Pacific Plug & Liner (PP&L), a perennial and specialty plant breeder, is returning to the California Spring Trials (CAST) April 1–6, 2017 with Camp Perennial where, according to the company, “adventure awaits attendees interested in an immersive experience with the latest perennial products from around the world.”
With the goal of bringing nostalgia and light-hearted fun together with a highly cultivated selection of quality varieties and complete programs, PP&L is also bringing a renewed focus on perennials in 2017. As attendees follow trails, collect merit badges, eat s’mores, and get hands on with the plants at a mixed perennial potting station, they will have more space to explore and a better opportunity to see everything on display.
PP&L will be featuring new perennial products alongside its Planthology Program, which includes:
• Hellebore ‘Frostkiss’
• Hula Berry
• Bubble Berry
For 2017, PP&L is hosting Bailey Nurseries, Cultivaris, and branded plant collections Encore, Southern Living Plant Collection, Sunset Western Garden Collection, and HMA Plants.
PP&L will also feature a Perennial Showcase, which will include material from Darwin Perennials, Dümmen Orange, Intrinsic Perennials, Plants Nouveau, and Syngenta Flowers. Returning in 2017 is the comparison trial, featuring Salvia nemorosa and early blooming leucanthemum.
