Perennial Plant Association Meeting

Beth Karp Cincinatti Gdn, OH

I’m just back from spending most of last week in Cincinnati at the annual Perennial Plant Association meeting along with 400+ of my closest plant friends.  One of the highlights of the design tour was visiting PDN customer Beth Karp’s amazing garden!Car parked under Bradford Pear

We also practiced our clairvoyant skills, predicting how long before this shiny car gets crushed by the overhanging limb from the weak-branched Bradford pear.  Who thought using these are street trees was a good idea?Muhlenbergia Peacock at Cincinatti Zoo

We enjoyed garden color echos like this one at the Cincinnati Zoo…I sure would love to see this again with the Muhlenbergia capillaris in flower.PPA lunch stop at Ault Park, Cincinatti OH

And when we got tired of bus touring, there was always a box lunch waiting like the one we enjoyed at Cincinnati’s Ault Park.  All in all, a great meeting with great tours, great talks, and great fellowship.  A special congratulations of Canada’s Brian Minter, who received the prestigious Award of Merit from the association!  If you work in the industry, I hope to see you at a future Perennial Plant Association meeting.
