Plant Collections Network

Plumeria

The Naples Botanical Garden’s Plumeria Collection achieved Plant Collections Network (formerly North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC) recognition in November 2011.  Comprising over 585 species and cultivars, the collection includes many Plumeria cultivars registered by the Plumeria Society of America.

Arecaceae

Montgomery Botanical Center (MBC) has a tradition of curating Palms since Col. Robert H. Montgomery established his estate, Coconut Grove Palmetum, in 1932. Its Palm Collection boasts an excellent diversity with extensive documentation useful for research, conservation, and education. Decades of historic collections data on provenance, collector, growth and development, are now maintained in electronic format accessible to researchers. MBC's Palm accessions are obtained through research and conservation expeditions.

Cactaceae

In 2010, the Garden’s living collections of plants in the cactus (Cactaceae) and agave (Agavaceae) families were designated as National Collections by the Plant Collections Network (formerly the North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC) of the American Public Gardens Association. This designation highlights the overall excellence of the Garden’s collections of these marvelous desert plants.
 

Aesculus

The Dawes Arboretum is a proud participant in the Plant Collections Network (formerly North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC). Our collections are maintained with proper documentation and maintenance practices as defined by the mandates established for inclusion in a Plant Collections Network collection.

Syringa

Since 2002, the Arnold Arboretum has been a member of the Plant Collections Network (formerly North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC), a network of botanical gardens administered through the American Public Gardens Association in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The primary focus of the Plant Collections Network is the long-term preservation of germplasm for research. Participating institutions commit to holding and developing collections that are primarily organized at the genus level.

Alpines of the World

The Denver Botanic Garden Rock Alpine Garden uses more than 500 tons of rock providing more than 20 different habitats simulating environments based on slope, soil type, moisture and exposure. This internationally-acclaimed garden is a premier example of the art of rock gardening and is home to over 2,300 species of plants. The plant collections in this garden are part of the Plant Collections Network (formerly North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC) Alpines of the World Collection.

Pinus

The Pinus and ornamental grass collections at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum became part of the Plant Collections Network (formerly North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC) in January 2012. Its Pinus Collection is comprised of 60 taxa represented by 200 individual trees.  The collection is dominated by native red pine (P. resinosa) and white pine (P. strobus), but also includes many other cold-hardy species, providing a demonstration of climate-appropriate pines.

Camellia

In 1997, the Norfolk Botanical Garden's camellia collection was named a Plant Collections Network (formerly North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC) collection. It is only two Plant Collections Network collections focusing on camellias. Norfolk Botanical Garden has more than 1700 camellia plants. Approximately 750 of those plants are found in the Hofheimer Camellia Garden, established in 1992 as a joint project of the Norfolk Botanical Garden and the Virginia Camellia Society. It is named in memory of Alan J. and Aline F.

Hexastylis

In 2001, Mt. Cuba Center was granted Plant Collections Network (formerly North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC) recognition as an official collection holder of the genus Hexastylis (Asarum). The genus Hexastylis became the focus of collection efforts at Mt. Cuba Center in the early 1990s. There are presently 19 taxa representing 10 species in the collection. Many of the species are from known provenance and natural populations.

Hydrangea

The Hydrangea collection at Norfolk Botancal Garden is designated an Official Plant Collections Network (formerly North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC). Plant Collections Network is a program of the American Public Gardens Association in cooperation with the USDA Agricultural Research Service. As part of this national designation, the Garden is committed to holding and developing a collection of documented living plants according to specified standards.
