Gardening is not brain surgery, or rocket science - and if I have learned one thing, it is that gardening should never be taken seriously. So have fun. There are no rules.

You may search all plants, or use the filter to search for annuals, perennials or those grown in sun, shade or for foliage or flowers. Scroll through any plant for useful information, swipe through hundreds of photos. Add plants to your list of favorites, and email some of these to your friends or spouse so they will buy you the plant you actually are lusting for.

For even more excitement, I have included videos where not only do I make a fool of myself, but may even teach you a few hints. Have fun!

    Very useful bc the author draws on his years of experience. The links to video are very helpful. I'd suggest a brief section on common weeds since I can't always identify them.

    This app is an invaluable tool for designing with perennials in any zone or growing condition.

    I am very much a novice at gardening and this app has helped a lot.

    As good as what this list does contain, its scope is very much restricted: "Armitage's Greatest". It does not contain Campanula, Aster, Hakonechloa, Carex, Iris, Liatris, Digitalis, Hosta, Cosmos, etc. It does not claim to be comprehensive. Hessayon's 'Flower Expert', for instance, contains a lot more. The list is based on his extensive personal observations and seems authoritative. Very friendly

    A great resource especially while at the nursery with so many plants, so much impulsivity needing to be reigned in.

    Wow...Dr Armitage has outdone himself with this wonderful plant reference app. The best I've seen anywhere. We are given insight into plants, their characteristics, growing habits and traits. Makes me want to sit with my smart phone and enjoy.

    Very interesting to see how the map has changed over the last 23 years! Eye opener!
