Each year, American Nurseryman features an entire magazine dedicated to the latest and most beautiful new and improved plants for the upcoming new year. That is, brighter color, renewed fragrance, improved disease resistance and more. For 2018, this is no different. Below, we’ve highlighted one new plant from each company. Click the links below to find our complete listings of new plants for 2018, divided by company. Be sure to check out each and every one of them — so many have captured our eyes!
