Designing a new landscape or garden will require at least a limited knowledge of plants. The more you know about the plants, flowers, and trees that will grow in your area, the better and easier it will be to come up with ideas and plan your designs.
These databases are a handy research tool for discovering new varieties, color combinations, zoning, general information, and more. Through the links on this page you should be able to find almost any plant information you could be searching for.
