Dr. Allan Armitage, a well-known garden writer from the University of Georgia’s research garden is probably the nation’s foremost expert on landscape plants in the U.S. including trees, shrubs, and flowers. He has spent his adult life traveling, studying, and photographing landscape plants and rating those that are the best performers. He recently created a new mobile app, Armitage’s Greatest Perennials and Annuals, in which he shares his vast knowledge.
The app is written with the home gardener in mind. Dr. Armitage suggests the best variety for hundreds of plants, and backs up his recommendations with years of personal experience, entertaining videos, and stunning photos. Easily search, for instance, for “perennials for shade for zones 3-4”. Find your favorites then stop by Town & Country Gardens and see them up close and personal. A “deer browsing” rating is also provided for almost every species, a tool that is of immense value in certain parts of east Idaho.
Armitage’s Greatest Perennials & Annuals is essentially a small reference book in your back pocket. It’s updated regularly, works on all Android and Apple smartphones and tablets, and costs only $4.99. A great value! Learn more and find the app on Google Play Store for Android or the iPhone App Store. More info at www.allanarmitage.net.
