Plants of the Year

Fairchild's Plants of the Year

Fairchild's plants of the year are chosen by a panel of knowledgeable horticulturists on Fairchild's staff.  Each year one or more plants are chosen based on the following criteria: ornamental appeal, ease of growing, low maintenance and  being well suited to South Florida's climate and growing conditions.  The plants must also be non-invasive and underused in the local landscape.  For information on Fairchild's plants of the year, click on the links below.
