California Horticultural Society Plant Forums

At each monthly meeting, the Plant Forum provides an opportunity for members to share their favorite plants with other horticulturally minded people. The idea is not to bring on only the very newest or oddest plant around (although those are certainly well-received) but to show plants that are of interest to you. One person's weed may end up another specimen!

Some people bring plants in pots, some representative cuttings. Anything goes as long as it helps to show what's interesting about the plant, even if it's just that it's really well grown.

Cal Hort enters each plant shown into it's searchable Plant Forum Database. To help facilitate this, we ask that each displayer fill out a short form providing pertinent information about the plant(s) being shown. These forms are availabe at the front desk when you come to the meeting, or you may also download and print the form to fill out in advance.

A text only listing of the Plant Forum is also printed in our monthly Bulletin.
