Gold Medal Plant Program Has Ended
Q: What are the Gold Medal Plant winners for 2017?
A: The director of horticulture at the State Botanical Gardens says the competitive market for new plants, along with a lack of funds to promote the program, has ended the Georgia Gold Medal Plant Program. Since 1994 this program has promoted superior shrubs, flowers, trees, and vines for Georgia gardeners. The list is an excellent starting point for choosing plants for long life and reliability in your landscape.
