Where did the name Western Nursery and Landscape Association come from? In 1890 a group of forward-thinking green industry leaders decided to get together with other excellent nursery firms west of the Mississippi River and create the Western Nurseryman's Association. Even though the association now has members from throughout the United States and Canada, the name "Western" is in honor of the association's long history.
