In honor of the heat, the theme for this year’s Floriculture Field Day is plants that thrive in high summer temperatures. Check out what’s new this year at the Bluegrass Lane plant trial facility: summer flowering annual bulbs, and a comparison of greenhouse vs. high tunnel grown bedding plants. Explore the collection of more than 1,000 perennials, including a special shade perennials section. The day’s events include lunch and an ice cream social.

Afternoon-only at Bluegrass Lane (including lunch) is $35. Late/on-site registration: $100 per person for the full program. $50 for afternoon-only (lunch and educational materials not guaranteed for those who register on-site).
