The Georgia Perennial Plant Association welcomes plant lovers of all kinds, because no garden is complete with perennials only.  We want to share that love along with knowledge, expertise and helpful information regarding buying, planting, caring for and sharing plants. We hope you will consider becoming a member.

Benefits of membership include invitations to our lectures at no charge, mini-talks, Q&A's with the experts, workshops, and local garden tours and visits. 
 Members also receive regular newsletters mixing updates on our activities with educational material about perennials and gardening.  


The Members' Only Content section gives members exclusive access to our lectures, newsletter and article collection, our expansive Plant Nursery Guide to Atlanta and Beyond, a list of Open Gardens that members can arrange to visit anytime, and other helpful gardening materials. 


Our low membership prices are a great value. Memberships for 2023 are $35 Individual, $50 Dual, $65 Business and $100 Sponsor. Memberships run from January 1 to December 31 of each year with renewals beginning in the fall prior to the new year. New members who sign up in the fall have memberships from the date of joinder to December of the following year.
