Plant Schedule

The following plants are generally hardy and available in Southwest Virginia. Plants are organized in the descending order of their size and impact on the landscape beginning with large trees which are long-lived and create microclimates and ending with annuals which are small and short-lived. This plant list is intended to be generic and flexible allowing the owner or contractor to select from other plants that have a similar size. I have listed some of the popular species, varieties cultivars and hybrids etc. Comments, common names flower or leaf color etc. are in parentheses.
