Description
With so many new perennials released every year, it can be difficult to distinguish legitimately better cultivars from those that are simply
marketable. Through production trials, garden visits, vendor visits, and conversations with other growers, Paul works to select the true
winners for our region (and throws some of the losers squarely in front of oncoming traffic).
