Dear Friends and Colleagues who loving flower bulbs and perennials,
XIII International Symposium on Flower Bulbs and Herbaceous Perennials is inviting you to Korea in 2019.
Korea held the first Lilium symposium in 1994, since then we have prepared a new interesting symposium integrated by two major symposia, ie., flower bulbs and herbaceous perennials. Since the first Lilium symposium was held in Korea in 1991, the second one was held in Italy in 2010 and the third one was held in China in 2014. The XII flower bulbs and perennials symposium was held in 2016 Kunming China. ISHS decided to merge two major symposiums for the efficient and variety of knowledge sharing.
Korea located in Far-East Asia surrounded by China, Russia, and Japan. This country possesses unique plant resources and climate diversity due to dynamic climatic changes through a year. More than 30 thousand species of vascular plants, many of them with ornamental value, have been found in Korea. Especially variety of Lilium species, including L. hansonii which is a unique species of Lilium all over the World, is found in Korea.
In Korea, spring is the most beautiful season by a full blooming of wild plants over the mountains of the country. The area of venue is famous for the flower show especially Tulip and Lily organized by regional companies approved by AIPH, and the symposium will be held at the best season for the flower shows. Invited people will enjoy much of flower exhibitions and show of Korean wild flowers and diverse cultural theme such as LED lighting show at night.
We hope all of you will participate in the XIII ISFBHP and enjoy the beautiful blooming of bulbs and herbaceous plants, scenery, and taste of dynamic KOREA. Convener
