Handpicked Plants



What Makes Handpicked for You® Plants Better?

Handpicked for You® plants undergo trials at regional grower locations and are evaluated by local independent garden centers before they are awarded the Handpicked for You® trustmark.

Each plant is tested on 10 core performance criteria and is evaluated on 18 additional factors designed to assess their suitability for your yard. Only the best garden performers are selected to receive the Handpicked for You® trustmark.

Handpicked for You® plants are also selected to be non-invasive and disease resistant as well as being low maintenance and easy for you to grow.

We stock these plants in season, but selection may vary. For specific availability, please call the nearest store location.
