I would like to know if there is any good web site that I can use to
narrow down selection of plants by various plant-characteristics.
I have a couple gardening books that have a list of plants described in
good details. But they are all sorted by their Latin names. I would
prefer that I can have an option to filter the list of plants and then
sort the list by various criteria from the most important to the least.
The kind of plant characteristics that I would like to be able to query
- Annual, perennial, or biannual
- Zone requirement
- Sun requirement
- Water requirement
- Soil requirement
- Height and width
- Shape of the plant
- Flower color
- Blooming season
Any suggestion? Thanks.
Although not comprehensive, Bluestone Perennials has a search feature on
their website that lets you specify characteristics such as zone, type of
soil, amount of sun, height, bloom time, bloom color, etc. You enter the
filters and it returns plants from their catalog that meet your
specifications. Since they have a good selection of plants, it is a helpful
tool even if you don't intend to buy anything. www.bluestoneperennials.com
You don't say where you live so a couple of these may not fit you
hardiness zone if you are in the US. Here's what I have.
These are just to look at color:
Limited selection of plants, but if you're in a colder zone of 4 to
it could be helpful.
