Plumerians Worldwide to Gather at the 2nd International Plumeria Conference
The Plumeria Society of America (PSA) and Naples Botanical Garden are pleased to announce the 2nd International Plumeria Conference (IPC), tentatively scheduled for May 18-22, 2016.
The site of the 2016 IPC is the renowned Naples Botanical Garden in Naples, Florida (www.naplesgarden.org). The Garden hosts the National Plumeria Collection, with over 500 plumeria trees. Field trips to other notable plumeria sites in the area are in the planning stages. More information coming soon!
Since the first conference in Galveston, almost 10 years ago, advances in plumeria cultivation and cultivar development have come fast and furious. The conference will gather the best minds in the plumeria world to share their knowledge and experience with plumeria enthusiasts - from hobbyists to vendors. The conference steering committee (Eulas Stafford, Hetty Ford, Tex Norwood, Karen Babb, and Mike Atkinson) is working closely with the PSA to craft an innovative, stimulating mix of workshops and presenters.
The conference will also feature a closing luau, and other fun surprises, including the introduction and auction of a new variety named in honor of the conference.
