••• Plants that Can for those who think they Can't! •••
Gardening is not brain surgery, or rocket science - and if I have learned one thing, it is that gardening should never be taken seriously. So have fun. There are no rules.
You may search all plants, or use the filter to search for annuals, perennials or those grown in sun, shade or for foliage or flowers. Scroll through any plant for useful information, swipe through hundreds of photos. Add plants to your list of favorites, and email some of these to your friends or spouse so they will buy you the plant you actually are lusting for.
For even more excitement, I have included videos where not only do I make a fool of myself, but may even teach you a few hints. Have fun!

Not compatible with iPhone Xr?
The App Store says this app is compatible with my new iPhone Xr, but when I open the app it just crashes. I used it before on my iPhone 6, and I continue to be able to use it on my iPad – but I am disappointed that I cannot use it on the Xr so that I can reference it while I am in the field. Also, the link to the developer site leads to a website that is not built yet, so I cannot directly contact the developer for a solution.
Limited info. Useful for a beginner
This app covers only some herbaceous perennials and annuals, no shrubs, no trees. There isn't information on propagation, planting what with what, drought tolerance... Most of what is included could be found on the plant tag at a decent nursery. If you are shopping at a hardware store, this app would be helpful as they include a lot less info on the tag. It does include the author's personal opinions of the plants, which is interesting. Specific cultivars are described and recommended. The photos are very pretty and clicking on one gives you plant details. You are able to edit the list by shade/sun, zone, flowers/foliage and a few other criteria which is helpful. I don't see myself using it much except for the pretty pictures.
This is incredible!
Every time I open the app, new and updated information is at my fingertips. This is not simply generic empty info, as I see on other garden apps, but easily read, in-depth information. The topics on deer resistance and pollinators are great. And Dr A’s humor is also appreciated.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
