The Landscape Show: New Ideas and New Plants

One of my favorite events of the year is the Florida Nursery, Growers, and Landscape Association's (FNGLA) The Landscape Show, held in Orlando every Setember.  The convention of nursery growers, garden experts, and landscape product vendors showcases the best of the country's newest and interesting ornamental plants and trees, elegant hardscape and accoutrements, innovative gardening tools, and horticultural experts for commercial and residential landscapes.

At the entrance, FNGLA organizers always have a lovely topiary scene greeting the guests.  This year, there were Busch Gardens toy soldiers, UF/IFAS chickens, and Sea World penguins.

Jaw-dropping mature trees, exciting foliage and colorful annual and perennial plants were on display and for sale to wholesalers.

Wholesale and retail nursery, Knox Farms award-winning display.
Multiple head Phoenix sylvestris
Award-winning booth of Oleo europeana
Award-winning Gumbo limbo, also known as Copperwood, Bursera simaruba
I always enjoy the classic water features and various pottery material to offer clients in future landscape designs.


Lots of great ideas and new resources. FNGLA's The Landscape Show has been a successful, mind-expanding exercise for my creativity and happily increased the desires of my plant addiction.
