About Georgia Perennial Plant Association
Welcome to the Georgia Perennial Plant Association. If you love plants and gardening, you have come to the right place. On the website, you will see details of our upcoming meetings and events and find lots of helpful information.
GPPA was created over thirty years ago by a group of passionate plant people and garden designers to promote the use of perennials in the garden through the "use of symposia, lectures, workshops and related activities..."
However, as one of our speakers, Jamie Blackburn, said:
As much as we all love chocolate, one can't live on chocolate alone. And as much as we all love those endless borders of herbaceous perennials, their effect is even more dramatic and beautiful when combined with a structural base of ornamental shrubs and plants with year round interest.
With emphasis on perennials, but including annuals, tropicals, shrubs and trees too, we hope to keep you informed about the broad, important and evolving world of horticulture.
We also promote visiting special gardens and independent nurseries together or on your own, sharing plants and socializing. Whether you join today or first come to one of our events to see why you should become a member, we hope to see you soon.
