2014 Plants of Distinction - Grand Rapids

This event is now full and no further reservations are being accepted.

New and Noteworthy Plants for Every Landscape

New plants are the life-blood of the landscape and gardening economy.  Plant research and global exploration influence the number and types of plants available. However, we all know that “new” is not always “best” for our landscapes. With consumers turning their attention to sustainability and green practices, the question arises “how much maintenance do these plants require?”  MSU Extension has developed a portfolio of renowned plant experts to present this annual seminar. Speakers will enrich your knowledge of widely sought-after plant material while remembering the foundational messages of “right plant right place.” 

The event will be held at the Grand Rapids Crowne Plaza, 4747 28th Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI.  49546.  Cost is $80, which includes lunch, refreshments and handouts.   Master Gardeners earn six education credits when they attend this session.  To learn more, click here to download an event summary.  From there you can also download a PDF of the event brochure.
