New Plant Showcase: Industry Event Invitation
Wednesday August 21, 2012

MUN Botanical Garden presents the New Plant Showcase, featuring new plant introductions and/or plants deemed worthy of trialing in our NL climate.
These plants are featured in over 30 creatively designed pots for both sun and shade. All the plants (annuals, shrub roses, a selection of rock garden perennials) are being evaluated on their performance, growth characteristics and special traits. There are also selected new shrubs in the trial planted in our new Asian Garden.
Please join us on Wednesday August 21 and see what's new and exciting!
