What's new vs. what's good

An activity for many gardeners during the winter is to look for new cultivars that can be added to their gardens this spring. A current trend in horticulture is to move new plants onto the market in the shortest possible time frame, creating a rapid process of both cultivar introduction and elimination in the market. Information on new and old cultivar garden performance are available from plant evaluation programs conducted by numerous universities, organizations, botanical gardens and arboretums.
