••• 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!

Covers many perennials and annuals shrubs, but not Exhaustive

I’m not familiar with Mr. Armitage, so my expectations were off. Someone recommended the app as an helpful guide to individual plants, but there were no trees, nor the usual evergreens like arborvitae or holly. Just two types of roses.

From a wealth of experience, the author recommends specific cultivars and solutions to a few specific gardening issues/categories such as drought-tolerant or deer-resistant plants.

The app works just fine on my iPhone 11.

Useful information from a trustworthy source

This app is great for anyone from beginner to experienced gardener. As a Master Gardener, I use this app and can confidently recommend it to others seeking answers. The app is easy to use and provides useful information from leaders in the gardening industry. Looking for pollinator plants? The app can help. Looking for deer resistant plants? The app can help. Want information about a particular plant? The app can help. Need to find a garden center near you? The app can help. These are just a few of the many resources provided by this app. Additional links are provided for further information. The information is updated as needed and new information is added periodically, such as the recently added Integrated Pest Management (IPM) section which provides sound guidance and practical advise to reduce the use of chemicals while having the garden of your dreams. I highly recommend this app!

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.
