Great Plant Picks- V.Helpful Lists in Many Sub -Categories

arbo_retum(z5 ,WinchstrMA)August 28, 2014

I just discovered this website and thought alot of you might find it useful.It's written for PNW but still many of the plants are hardy elsewhere. Perennials, Grasses, Shrubs, Trees, Foliage, Dry Shade, Bogs, Small Shady Places- many different lists.
Plse feel free to add sites that you love that also have great lists!

Note that the heights given for the trees in particular are often ridiculously low, as though representing short spans of development such as 5 or 10 years.

If you are interested in this kind of thing a good phrase to search is "plant selector".

These are a couple of my favorite Tree Selectors.

I'd like to find more websites that let you sort by different tolerances and qualities at once. The Lady Bird Johnson Center contains a lot of plants but doesn't let you search by tolerances. The other two let you search by tolerance but don't contain many plants.
