The Earth Kind Plant Selector is NOT a list of recommended plants. In fact, many of the plants returned from a data inquiry may NOT be well adapted to your area (i.e. these plants will have a low Earth-Kind Index value for your region). The objective of this on-line tool is to provide educational information on a wide range of plant materials to assist in making selections for the landscape.
The Earth-Kind Plant Selector allows for two methods of searching for plants:
Search All Plants
Searches for and returns all plants based on any criteria provided. May return plants that are not well adapted for your region.
Quick List (Plants rated 8 or higher)
Generate a listing of all plants in your area with Earth-Kind indexes of 8 or greater based on any criteria provided. Plants listed are likely to be well adapted for your area.
