Now that the garden centers in big-box stores and nurseries are getting ready to open and the sap is rising — both in gardens and gardeners — it’s time to talk about the most exciting new plant introductions this year.
Looking for something different to perk up your enthusiasm is so much easier now via the Internet. I spent a morning going from one site to another after looking at the “New Introductions for 2013” issue of Horticulture magazine. There are well-known companies putting forth new varieties and many garden writers who keep up with debuts on their blogs. Take a look at these websites: inandaroundthehouse.com and pinterest.com/gardencrossings/new-garden-plants-for-2013/ for many possibilities, including photographs.
