This event was held April 2-3, 2011 at the Education Building at
Brookside Gardens, located at 1800 Glenallan Avenue, Wheaton, Maryland.  The show co-chairmen were William Miller and Rix Perkins.

Some 565 blooms were entered by 24 exhibitors, and several hundred attendees viewed the exhibition following the conclusion of judging.   CSPV also conducted a very successful plant sale, completely selling out all available stock.
