On April 15, Plant Select launched a consumer-friendly website.

Features include:

Plant Finder: Consumers can search for plants based on a variety of characteristics (height, width, flowering season & color, cold-hardiness, cultural needs, winter interest, deer resistance and pollinator benefits) to find just the right plant to meet their needs or solve problems.

Where to Buy: Choose from retailers, online retailers, landscape professionals, re-wholesalers, wholesale licensed growers and wholesale seed sellers; sort by name or location. These member companies have committed to providing Plant Select plants and services to consumers at every level.

Free, downloadable xeriscape designs are found on the Garden Ideas page, and dozens of gorgeous images showing gardens and plant combinations with detailed captions in the Design Gallery will inspire.

The “Learn” tab leads to three informative options. Plant Stories contain in-depth information about each plant, offer design and combination ideas and maintenance tips. Watch 15 videos on a range of topics, including plants for pollinators, ornamental grasses, South African ice plants, and water-wise groundcovers on the Video Series page. The Demonstration Gardens page lists 80 public gardens to visit to find plants that perform well in communities throughout five western states – images and directions included.
