Welcome to the Connecticut Hardy Plant Society
Sanguinaria canadensis f. multiplex
The HARDY PLANT SOCIETY (HPS) of New England, Connecticut
Chapter is a friendly and informal gathering of plant lovers. The stated
purpose of HARDY PLANT SOCIETY is to cultivate and promote
interest in plants that are hardy in New England from the tiniest
herbaceous plants to giant trees and all between. As our membership
draws from a broad range of interests the exchange of ideas and
knowledge among our group is dynamic!
HPS holds a series of evening lectures from September to April.
These meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of the month except
November and December when they are held on the third Wednesday.
There is no lecture in February. A coffee hour precedes all events,
starting at 7:00PM. The December meeting also includes a holiday
celebration. Often there is a raffle and/or auction of donated plants
prior to the lecture.
Our group presents the HARDY PLANT SYMPOSIUM held on the first
Saturday in March. We host two speakers in an all-day affair. This
event is always interesting and informative. And a lunch consisting of
soups and breads is provided by members who really know how to
We invite you to join HARDY PLANT SOCIETY. The annual dues are
$25 for a single membership and $30 for a family membership. The
membership year begins September 1 and ends August 31.
HPS was formed in 1994 and has since incorporated, achieving 501 (c)
(3), non-profit status.
