The Minnesota State Horticultural Society (MSHS) is sponsoring a book release and presentation on the new book by Dr. Mary Hockenberry Meyer and Susan Davis Price, 10 Plants that Changed Minnesota.

Which ten plants helped shape Minnesota—how it developed economically, culturally, and historically? With careful review of over 500 citizen nominations by more than 30 experts and scientists and with research drawn from newspaper and journal reports, historical photos, diaries, and interviews, Mary Hockenberry Meyer and co-author Susan Davis Price highlight the importance of the selected plants and their impact—both positive and negative—in the development and future of the State of Minnesota.

Appetizers will be served. Books will be available for purchase, and MSHS members will receive their 15% discount if they show their membership card. Those interested in attending can register through MSHS online at or call 651-643-3601; the event is $10 for MSHS members and $15 for nonmembers.

Dr. Mary Hockenberry Meyer is a professor of horticultural science at the University of Minnesota and author of many popular and scholarly articles on plants.

About the Minnesota State Horticultural Society: MSHS’ mission is to serve northern gardeners through education, encouragement and community with a focus on horticulture. It was founded in 1866 as an association of fruit growers who took on the challenge of growing apples in a northern climate. Today, MSHS serves northern gardeners of all experience levels through community outreach and educational programs, membership, Northern Gardener magazine and classes. In 2016, MSHS celebrated its 150th anniversary and is looking ahead to address current issues in horticulture, such as helping gardeners provide habitat and food for pollinators and helping low-income families and at-risk youth learn to vegetable garden.
