Rare or endangered species are not described. Information on each plant is provided according to the following categories: Common Name(s)/Botanical Name/Family, Characteristics, Landscape Uses, Size, Zones and Habitat.

  • Published 5/25/2016
  • The recommendations in this circular are based on long-term average dates of the last killing frost in the spring and first killing frost in the fall.
