The annual Farwest Show held in Portland, Oregon, invites entries for its 2019 New Varieties Showcase.

Submissions are now open for these new plant introductions. The showcase is an annual highlight of the trade show, held this year on August 21–23 at the Oregon Convention Center, Portland, Oregon.

Raising the Bar

Each year cutting-edge plant varieties from around the world are on display and judged by industry experts (and more than 5,000 show attendees) for awards and recognition.

The showcase is one of the industry’s most-watched events for previewing new plant introductions that will raise the bar in the marketplace. Macore will sponsor the 2019 New Varieties Showcase.

How to Enter

To be considered for inclusion in the Showcase, all entrants must visit and download, complete, and return the New Varieties Showcase PDF entry form by June 30.

To qualify for approved entry, plants must exhibit qualities of greater hardiness, increased bloom time, more vibrant colour, improved habit and/or better disease resistance. Entries must be new market introductions for 2019 or 2020.

Designated Grower

Also, entries must be available for purchase from a designated grower or supplier exhibiting at the 2019 show. At the 2018 show, 60 impressive varieties were on display, including annuals, grasses, perennials, shrubs and trees.
