Foolproof Plants for Small Gardens, an app from Susan Morrison and Sutro Media, offers designers and homeowners alike a tool for selecting the right plants based on characteristics, growing habits, USDA zone and more.
In our wonderful world of information overload, editing down has become quite the talent. The beauty of this app is in what’s not there. In other words, you don’t get every plant that is available on the globe. Instead you get plants that will work in your area. And the cutoff size for shrubs is 5 feet or smaller, and trees are 25 feet and smaller. So unless you are designing a national park it will work for the majority of gardens.
