Plantarium is one of the major trade horticultural exhibitions in the world. It takes place towards the end of August every year in the heart of the horticultural production district of The Netherlands. While horticultural machinery and sundries are important, it is the plant exhibits that are the great attraction. These comprise completely new cultivars as well as new introductions that may have been around in North America, Asia or Australasia for a short time. Prior to the exhibition, this blog and the New Plants pages of the GardenMessenger web-site showcased a few of the new introductions as information became available. The remaining plants that were exhibited and received recognition from the horticultural profession can be reviewd on the GardenMessenger web-site click here.
