PPA Announces 2019 Symposium Keynote

The Perennial Plant Association has announced that Piet Oudolf, the influential Dutch garden designer and leading figure in the “new perennial” movement, will speak during the 2019 National Symposium.

Oudolf, using his own colorful photography, will tell the story of his ever-evolving style through highlights of his past and current projects. His keynote appearance will take place Tuesday, July 30, during the PPA National Symposium held in conjunction with All-America Selections and National Garden Bureau. The National Symposium will be taking place July 28-Aug. 2, 2019, in Rosemont, Illinois.

Piet Oudolf’s work can be found throughout the world, including in The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, England, Ireland, Italy, Canada and the United States.

Participants of the 2019 National Symposium have the option to expand their three-day core symposium (Tuesday – Thursday) to a weeklong experience. Selections include extended education tours, sightseeing and renowned speaker engagement opportunities such as perennial plant expert, Roy Diblik, and Ball Horticultural’s president and CEO, Anna Ball. In addition to Oudolf’s keynote, he will also participate in a panel discussion entitled, “Riding the New Dutch Wave.”
