2014 Floriculture Field Days
& Performance Trials
It's time to tell the story of how plants get their start and the Epcot® International Flower and Garden Festival is the right place to do just that. FNGLA and Disney's Horticulture team have teamed up to showcase the newest flowering plant releases and the greatest innovations in the Floriculture Industry.
Hosted during the Epcot® International Flower and Garden Festival, FNGLA will broaden its successful partnership with Walt Disney World and host industry field trials for annuals, perennials and vegetative crops in conjunction with a cutting-edge industry educational conference.

The International Gateway right outside the resort entrance of Epcot will be transformed into the 3rd Annual Performance Trials held in conjunction with this conference. Florida's spring season is an ideal time to evaluate plants for garden performance and test their resilience to the heat and humidity of Florida's climate. Participant plant beds will be planted 6 weeks prior to the conference. Breeders will showcase exciting new colors, textures and durability. Each variety will be evaluated by Disney's horticulture team and results will be available to industry. Come see first-hand what will "wow" consumers in the upcoming year!
