Oregon-based Terra Nova® Nurseries Inc. will showcase their plant breeding and genetics at the International Horticultural Exhibition 2019, which started April 29 and runs through October 7 in the Expo Park of the Yanquin District of Beijing, China. Terra Nova will be the only American company to exhibit at China’s largest horticultural expo in nearly 10 years. More than 60 varieties and 50,000 of their plants will be on display throughout the show, including in the exclusive “Terra Nova Garden” at the Expo Garden Town.
Beijing Florascape Ltd., a longtime international business partner and Terra Nova licensee, will assist Terra Nova with their exhibits. For more than five years the two businesses have worked together and previously introduced more than 100 perennial varieties to the Chinese market. Terra Nova will concentrate on display garden design and Beijing Florascape will grow the plants and install the exhibits.
Cold-tolerant and early blooming varieties were planted in March for the show, as the Expo Park sits in a high elevation climate that can be 35–40 F cooler than the rest of Beijing. Several varieties have been trialed over the past two years to in anticipation of the growing conditions.
When the exhibition ends, Terra Nova and Beijing Florascape will change out all the plants for their continued display throughout July and August as part of an indefinite display for the public.
