Southern Region of North America


PPS, the global network for nursery growers and professional horticulturists started in North America in the 1950s. There are regions in over eight geographically defined areas: Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Europe, Southern Africa and in the USA: the Eastern Region, Western Region and Southern Region.

The Southern Region became a region in1975 of IPPS. The IPPS Southern Region of North America has over 200 members all around the southeastern United States. Membership consists of those working in many aspects of the nursery industry, researchers, academics, consultants and students all sharing plant production knowledge freely.

In the Southern Region our goal to improve the knowledge, skills and professionalism of its members. IPPS members agree to freely Seek and Share their knowledge, skills and expertise for the benefit of our profession and we do this through our annual conference, specialty workshops, visits to nurseries and other horticultural establishments, and, increasingly, through social media. Members have access to educational conferences, new plants, new propagation techniques, and the combined proceedings of all annual conferences since 1951.

Are you a professional involved in ornamental plant production, horticultural research and education or any other allied field? Do you wish to learn more and are you willing to share your knowledge? Then join now, you would certainly benefit from IPPS and its members from you!
