We are currently planning to host the 2021 Southeastern Plant Symposium in person, but that is dependent on the COVID situation in late spring. Our perennials-focused symposium will be two days of incredible, intense programs for plant lovers. The accompanying rare plant auction has already reached legend status among plantsmen/women.
