About

For questions asking for particular plants that meet a specific need; be sure to describe the type of plant you're looking for, overall climate in your area, where the plants will be situated, and any other information that a respondent will need to know.

Use this tag for questions asking about species or plant groups that meet a particular need - e.g. fill a particular space, be a wind-break, etc.

Include as much information in your question as possible about:

  • what type of plants you're looking for: perennials vs. annuals, herbaceous or not, deciduous vs. evergreen, etc.
  • the overall climate where you live.
  • the environment where the plants will be situated: indoors vs. outdoors, sun vs. shade, space available for the plants to grow, etc.

Use the tag for questions where the plant is already known, but the query is for particular varieties or cultivars.
