We had a great seminar here at the Seffner Extension office for those who are always looking for the next great plant to grow. The plantsmen Alan Shapiro, Larry Schokman, Stephen Pategas, Robert Bowden, and David Price showed us their favorite plants that they have either recently discovered or think that are underutilized in the industry.

If you were not able to be at the seminar I have the presentations saved on my webpage. You can download them and click through the images. They did a great job of capturing their favorites on camera. I have the presentations separated by speaker. Here is the link to the Expanding Your Plant Palette presentations. http://hillsborough.extension.ufl.edu/Ag/AgOrnProd/AgPresentations2009.html
