I have only been to the CBG one time. It instantly went onto my list of places I would like to return to. Thanks for making us aware of this report. I am sure I will find it interesting.

Lisa — ​These evaluations are terrific especially because they are for our area of the country. Often it seems like much info is for coastal gardeners.

Erin @ The Impatient Gardener

I always look to see if CBG has done a plant evaluation before choosing a cultivar. Such good information and a true test of the plants. I think they test them all for at least five years, right?

Linda from Each Little World

Erin — There is some variation in these numbers on different plant but generally the plant trials last four years for perennials, six for shrubs and vines and seven to ten years for trees.


Thank you for sharing this. I'm a big fan of ferns and was totally unaware of the CBG trials. I'll be clicking on the links to learn more!

Peter — I think most of the info will work for you. Probably the thing to look for is adverse reactions to wet conditions since you get more rain than we do.
