Meet our latest bougainvillea at the California Spring Trials

The California Spring Trials (CST) is an annual event where the world’s prominent breeders, growers, educators, brokers, marketing professionals, and other plant enthusiasts review new annual, perennial, ornamental, grass, and vegetable introductions. The CST is typically held in March or April, the event takes place throughout California at several breeder/grower locations. From Spring Trials, new varieties are tested and trialed throughout the world in trial and display gardens to determine performance characteristics and market suitability.

This year it starts on Saturday, April 1 and is held at various locations throughout the state.  The event is a launching ground for some of the newest plant varieties, signage and packaging products, as well as merchandising programs and concepts.

We are going to present our new bougainvillea Sunstone Red.

In addition, many locations include PGR experiments, outdoor trialing, and technical information and help. American Hort organizes the development and execution of the annual California Spring Trials as a valuable and unique industry event.
