2021 Plants of the Year

It’s time once again to share with you plants that have received an honorable distinction as a ‘plant of the year” as recognized by various gardening, horticulture, and conservation entities. Let’s take a virtual tour of this year’s Plants of the Year, and we hope you’ll discover a winner to grow in your garden or landscape as well.

It’s been a year of challenge, change, courage, and compassion. And through it all, a welcome respite was found outdoors in the nature, landscapes, and gardens that surrounded us. As this year comes to close, we wanted to share with you some of your most viewed plants, collections, and organization profiles from our Plants Map community. Thank you for continuing to grow with us. We look forward to Happy New Year 2021.

As November ends, we hope you are enjoying all that this season of gratitude has to offer. Each day we appreciate the opportunity to meet and work with more people that feel the same as we do about connecting people with plants. Thank you for your continued support and for being a part of our community. 

We hope you are enjoying a beautiful fall season. This month we want to connect you with therapy gardens, updated green jobs resources, champion trees, pumpkin recipes, and a few ways to get your spirits up for Halloween.
