Find the perfect plants, shrubs and trees for your gardens and landscaping. Each spring since 1997, Plant Select has announced winning varieties of plants that flourish in the unique growing conditions and climates of Colorado. Plant Select® is a cooperative program administered by Denver Botanic Gardens and Colorado State University in concert with horticulturists and nurseries throughout the Rocky Mountain region and beyond.

Xeriscape Colorado is a program of the Colorado WaterWise Council. Xeriscape promotes creative approaches to water conserving landscapes by helping people improve their landscapes and to reduce the need for water, maintenance and other resources.
