GWA Annual Conference & Expo

What a trip! 

This year's Garden Writers Association Annual Conference & Expo was held in Atlanta.  It was a busy conference full of education, garden tours, and of course, lots of plant talk! 

As always, it was pleasure catching up with everyone throughout the conference and particularly in the exhibit hall.  Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs had several new varieties on display.  I'd have to say the crowd favorites were Pearl Glam™ Beautyberry Callicarpa and Purple Pillar™ Rose of Sharon Hibiscus.

The garden tours were amazing...even in the rain!  The Atlanta Botanical Garden was my favorite. Lots of unique and inspiring gardens throughout the grounds and the catwalk was pretty cool too!  

We also toured several private residences and one stuck out, largely because my other passion, midcentury design.  The house and the gardens complemented each other so well. 

Thank you to the GWA board and committees for their hard work to make this event a success.  Next year's conference and expo is in Buffalo, NY from August 4-7...mark your calendars!
