New for 2016

New Plants are introduced to the Plant Select program each year.  Plants are selected through trialing and testing at Denver Botanic Gardens, Colorado State University, and public gardens like DBS’s Library Demonstration Garden. Our Docent do the planting and keep records on plants every year.  Listed below are our winners for 2016.

Check with Durango Nursery and Supply, Native Roots Nursery, Cliff Rose Nursery and AJ’s Greenhouse for these plants.

New plants are listed in the sidebar on the left.

Alan's Apricot ice plant

Delosperma 'Alan's Apricot' PPAF

This superior form has larger (2") showy blooms covering the foliage nearly all summer long. Flower color changes seasonally from a true orangey-apricot to soft orangey-pink and then back again. Brought to Plant Select® by Alan Tower, Spokane WA. The hardiest and longest-blooming of all of our ice plant selections! Good for containers, rock gardens, rock walls and for edging. Xeriscape. 
Tips from the pros: Wetness in the winter can cause die-back - just trim or pull it off in the spring. Thrives in a variety of sites, growing best in amended well-drained soil with occasional watering.
