PPA Announces 2020 Virtual Edition

The Perennial Plant Association’s first “PPA: Virtual Edition” event will take place June 17, 2020. The topic will be New Ways to Communicate.

Presented in partnership with GardenComm, this webinar will feature five speakers who will each give a quick, 15-minute presentation on communication and marketing ideas to use during this unusual spring and summer.

Our exciting lineup of marketing experts are Jessica DeGraaf, Proven Winners; C.L. Fornari, The Garden Lady; Jennifer Polanz, Green Profit; Jo Ellen Meyers Sharp, Write for You!; and David Wilson, Overdevest Nurseries.

Following the webinar, participants can join PPA’s virtual Happy Hour (limited tickets available) where they are invited to grab their drink of choice, turn on their camera, and join select speakers and PPA Board members for a structured conversation.

More information and registration is available at

Additional “Virtual Edition” events will be scheduled throughout the summer.  Watch for details on upcoming events.

As announced to PPA members a few weeks ago, the Perennial Plant Association Board of Directors voted to not hold a National Symposium in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.  However, while the 2020 National Symposium is cancelled, PPA announced that the trip to Pennsylvania is simply postponed and  the 2021 Perennial Plant Association National Symposium will be July 26-30, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The 2022 Perennial Plant Association National Symposium will be July 25-29, 2022 in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

More details about the 2021 National Symposium in Lancaster, PA will be posted to in the coming months.  We look forward to seeing our perennial plant friends online this summer and in Lancaster next summer!
