Horticulturists at LSUAgCenter's Hammond Research Station are on the hunt to rediscover underused landscape plants that have performance potential in Louisiana.

This program is called "Plants with Potential."

A core component of the program is offering plants that can be propogated without restrictions. Many newly-developed varieties on the market carry invention patents, which can be costly to wholesale growers.

We gardeners crave color in our landscapes. We provide that color primarily through the use of colorful bedding plants and bright flower beds. Colorful flower beds are one of the highest maintenance parts of our landscapes, however, so try to add as much color as you can with permanent woody plants like trees and shrubs.
