Results in for 2020 GreatPlants of the Year!

The results are in for the 2020 GreatPlants of the Year! The candidates were voted on by attendees of the 2017 Great Plains Conference. Winners are picked 3 years in advance so nurseries and garden centers have enough time to source or grow plant material before the winners are announced and promoted to the buying public.
