Seasonal color can be an incredible addition to one's landscape toolbox. FNGLA's Florida Flower Trials serve as a great place to sharpen business skills and get a first-hand glimpse of how the newest annual plant varieties can boost profit margins.
Florida Flower Trials is a two-day annual event where top plant breeders, education experts and key industry members come together to exchange ideas and witness which ornamental plant varieties can stand Florida's oppressive heat and humidity.
Attendees will get to experience three trial sites, each featuring both sun and shade varieties and their own micro-climate. Trial sites are planted six weeks prior to the conference to allow for ample maturity of the plants. Each location brings with it a different perspective on planting designs, features and maintenance techniques.See how the different methods produce different results.
You'll also get the chance to connect with breeders as they showcase exciting new colors, textures, pest-resistant, durable varieties. Trial results will also be made available to conference attendees.More Information
