What are ‘Favorite Plants’?
The plants in this section have to meet a number of criteria before I will feature them on this site. These features include:
- I have personally grown them at Aspen Grove Gardens. I will not promote a plant just because others think it is special.
- If the plant is a perennial, tree or grass, it has survived at least 3 years in the garden. I hate being sold a perennial that is short-lived!
- The plant is not invasive nor does it take over its neighbors. That does not mean it won’t spread. If it spreads, the spread is reasonable and does not need yearly control.
- I would give the plant to my best gardening friends.
The following is a list of my favorite plants.
