The 2012 Farwest Show, now in its 40th year, has announced the lineup for this year’s event, including a featured celebration of the genus Acer. The 2012 Farwest Show will take place August 23-25 at the Oregon Convention Center, in Portland, Oregon.

The 2012 Farwest Show, now in its 40th year, has announced the lineup for this year’s event, including a featured celebration of the genus Acer, according to Farwest Show director Allan Niemi.

“Everything that Farwest attendees love about the show will be back this year,” Niemi said. “We’ll have an excellent selection of nursery tours, a full docket of seminars, our showcase featuring close to 50 new plant varieties, a new Retail Marketplace, and for 2012 our genus focus will be on the Acer.”

From petite Acer palmatums to stately shade trees, many different species and cultivars will be installed in special displays at this year’s Farwest, whose host, the Oregon Association of Nurseries (OAN), plans to showcase the breadth of Acer plants grown in the region for use in residential, municipal and commercial landscapes.

“We want to inspire and educate attendees and persuade our industry to see the design value the Acer family brings to the landscape,” OAN director of marketing Ann Murphy said.

This year’s show will also include two days of nursery tours, networking events, 30 hours of seminars, a New Varieties Showcase with nearly 50 new plants, a New Products Showcase, a Demo Stage, and a Retail Marketplace offering gift items geared to garden centers.

The 2012 Farwest Show will take place August 23-25 at the Oregon Convention Center, in Portland, Oregon. For more information, visit www.farwestshow.com.
