List of Perennial Plants of the Year

March 19, 2016


Under construction

Not all the Perennial Plant Association Plants of the Year winners are suitable for Zone 3 as perennials. They become annuals. I will be eliminating those plants as I gather more of the Plant Profiles.

I am making my list of plants to add in 2015 to my Zone 3 garden in Calgary.
