Greener: Nature in
To help you with the dilemma of choosing
the right plant to keep your yard green, the Department of
Planning and Development has prepared a selected plant list of cold hardy
and drought tolerant plants from trees to flowers to make your
yard more beautiful and resistant to our changing weather
patterns. All of the
plants recommended are readily available at local nurseries.
Nature in the City has three sections: a landscape
plan showing the application of the plants for home use; a chart
listing all the plants for each category: trees, shrubs,
groundcovers, ornamental grasses, vines and flowers, plus a plant fact sheet
for each plant.
