2013 Year of the Wildflower
Every year, the National Garden Bureau selects a perennial, vegetable and flower to represent their "plants of the year."
Selected for popularity, widely adaptable and easy-to-grow characteristics, these plants reflect horticultural diversity across the country.
For 2013, NGB has chosen wildflowers to represent the category of "perennial of the year." So rent a sod cutter, remove that static lawn and start a wildflower bed!
