Plant Select Demonstration Garden


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.

Since 2012, IBG has showcased some of these plants in our Plant Select® Demonstration Garden. We became a licensed propagator in 2018, which allows us to grow these outstanding plants for use in our garden and to offer them for sale to the public.

Plants were chosen for the program to exhibit these eight attributes:

  • Flourish with less water
  • Thrive in a broad range of conditions
  • Habitat-friendly
  • Tough and resilient in challenging climates
  • One of a kind/unique
  • Resist disease & insects
  • Long-lasting beauty
  • Non-invasive
