Plant Select

(Echium amoenum - Red feathers by Marj Hopkins)

Plant Select® is a well-established, unique collaborative venture between Denver Botanic Gardens, Colorado State University and Green Industries of Colorado. Its main aim is to identify and distribute the best plants for gardens from the High Plains to the intermountain regions. The first publication, “Durable Plants for the Garden,” published in 2009, featured 75 plants with beautiful illustrations to accompany the text and photographs. Since then, many new plants have been included in the Plant Select® program. The second publication is in planning and we have participated this time too and will provide some illustrations of the new plants. Please see more of them by clicking here
