Right Perennial, Right Place

right perennial, right place From a new, full-color, large format brochure — Right Perennial, Right Place — from a project sponsored in part by the Department of Horticulture:

“For successful perennial gardening you need to choose plants that fit your site, including environmental conditions. Just as perennials come in all sizes, shapes, colors and bloom times, New York has climate zones that range from just cold in the winter to positively arctic! You
need plants that can tough it out where you live.

“Check out these 14 perennials, chosen by a panel of nursery and garden center owners. We think they’re worthy of greater use, and that’s why we’re trialing them at 10 sites statewide. We want to see how each holds up to local conditions–helping you choose the right perennial for the right place.”

Trialing locations include Lockwoods Greenhouse (Hamburg, NY), Mike Weber Greenhouses (Gardenville, NY), Cook & Gardener (Plattsburg, NY), Techni-Growers (Warwick, NY), Patroon Nursery (Wynantskill, NY),
Martin Viette Nursery, (East Norwich, NY), Mark Adams Greenhouses (Poughkeepsie, NY), Baker’s Acres (Groton, NY), and Grossmans (Penfield, NY).

Additional support for the project came from the New York Farm Viability Institute, New York State Flower Industries Inc. and the New York State IPM Program.
