PPA Announces Call for 2021 Landscape Design Award Entries

The Perennial Plant Association has announced that the application period for the 2021 Landscape Design Awards is now open. The application form can be found at www.perennialplant.org/LandscapeDesign.

Initiated in 1992, the Landscape Design Awards program recognizes design projects that are exemplary in use of herbaceous perennials to help create balanced and beautiful landscapes. The “after-market” applications of growers’ products and the design, installation, and maintenance of plants in gardens and natural settings are of special interest to the Perennial Plant Association. Both experienced and novice gardeners are invited to participate.

Each year, judges evaluate many outstanding landscape designs and select the most excellent entries based on the effectiveness of herbaceous perennial plant material used through the installation of new cultivars, color combinations, textures and seasonal combinations.

The entries comprise 11 categories based on residential, commercial, educational, temporary/seasonal designs and price of production. The judges are professionals in the fields of horticulture and design.

Award applications and supporting materials are due to the Perennial Plant Association office by March 26, 2021. Applicants will be notified of evaluations in May 2021.
