Each plant option is sorted by zone, light requirement and moisture level and accompanied by detailed photography – visitors can find the proper growth instructions for plants, shrubs and flowers best for their backyard. In addition, visitors can find a rotating assortment of related topics, including recipes, flower arrangements and container gardening.
A mobile version of the website allows users to bring the information directly to their gardens.
