Plants Management Australia raises $50,000 toward dementia research

In 2012 dianthus specialists, Whetman Pinks UK, created a scented flowering plant - Dianthus ‘Memories’ – purpose bred to raise funds for dementia research. In 2013 the plant made its way to Australian plant nurseries and in a collaboration between Plants Management Australia (PMA) and Alzheimer’s Australia $50,000 has now been raised toward dementia research from the plant sales.
