New Plant Select Garden Featured at Idaho Botanical Garden
The Idaho Botanical Garden is now a propagation member of Plant Select, the country’s leading brand of plants designed to thrive in high plains and Intermountain regions. IBG will now be able to propagate these special plants for sale and for use throughout the garden. For the past several years IBG has showcased some of these plants in our Plant Select® demonstration garden, and we are excited to deepen our ties to this outstanding program.
Plant Select® is a nonprofit collaboration of Colorado State University, Denver Botanic Gardens, and professional horticulturists. Its mission is to seek out and distribute the very best plants for landscapes and gardens from the intermountain region to the high plains and beyond.
Plants chosen for the program exhibit these eight attributes:
- Flourish with less water
- Thrive in a broad range of conditions
- Tough and resilient in challenging climates
- One of a kind/unique
- Resist disease & insects
- Long-lasting beauty
