The Mississippi Medallion program was established in 1996 by the Mississippi Nursery and Landscape Association (MNLA). The program is intended to increase awareness of good performing plant materials and to promote sales and production of ornamental plants in Mississippi. Compared to national campaigns such as All-American Selections and Perennial Plant of the Year, the Mississippi Medallion program focuses on plants adapted to the environment in Mississippi to benefit both consumers and the green industry. Over 70 landscape and garden plants have selected as Mississippi Medallion selections.

This publication gives an introduction to the 2020 Mississippi Medallion Plants and is part of a series of publications that promote awareness of these plants.
