MSU plans to host tour for award-winning plants
VERONA, Miss. -- Mississippi State University experts are hosting a Mississippi Medallion Program Aug. 24 in Verona to demonstrate how these top-performing ornamental plants can be used in home gardens.
The event runs from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the North Mississippi Research and Extension Center. The presenter will be Geoff Denny, horticulture specialist with the MSU Extension Service.
Denny will lead a guided tour of the gardens at the center. He will discuss the different plants growing in the gardens, highlighting the Mississippi Medallion winners. The event is free and open to the public, and preregistration is not required.
This Mississippi Medallion Program promotes Mississippi-grown plants. Established by the Mississippi Nursery and Landscape Association, its purpose is to identify plants that perform exceptionally well throughout the state and to promote the proper use of these plants in Mississippi landscapes.
