Landscape Plants for Georgia
Landscape Plants for Georgia isn't a flashy site, but it's packed with no-nonsense information for gardeners throughout our region. (Georgia includes USDA hardiness Zones 6b through 8b.) The site includes comprehensive plant lists for vines, ground covers, shrubs, and trees. Once you've compiled your list of possible plants, you can use an Internet search to find photos.
