Each year Western Horticultural Society curates one of the most popular displays at the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show - Hot Plant Picks!  It is where Bay Area gardeners go to get excited and inspired by the latest and the greatest. The exhibit showcases newly discovered plants, new introductions, new selections of old favorites and plants that have been forgotten but are worth bringing back into the public view. 

Hot Plant Picks is made possible by the generous plant donations from wholesale and retail nurseries and growers.

Western Hort volunteers staff the booth for the duration of the show. They are assisted by volunteers from California Horticultural Society, California Rare Fruit Growers, Bay Area Garden Railway Society, Sei Boku Bonsai Kai and Santa Clara Valley Master Gardeners.
