Darwin Perennials hosted its 2019 Perennials Day on June 19 at its trial beds in West Chicago, IL. The event brings vendors, customers, retailers, sales representatives, and landscape professionals together to compare and contrast the newest lineup of Darwin Perennials varieties, along with row trial comparisons in Phlox paniculata, Coreopsis, Dianthus, and Salvia nemorosa.
Guests also had the opportunity to hear from Richard Hawke, of the Chicago Botanic Garden (CBG), who shared top-rated perennials from CBG trials, as well as an afternoon presentation by Dr. Todd Cavins and Chris Fifo. The duo suggestions on growing a successful perennial program in a talk titled “Grow Like a Pro.”
