Earth–Kind® Plant Selector Home

Using the Plant Selector

The Earth–Kind® Plant Selector is NOT a list of recommended plants. In fact, many of the plants returned from a data query may NOT be well adapted to your area (i.e. these plants will haev a low Earth–Kind® index value for your region). The objective of this online tool is to provide educational information on a wide range of plant materials to assist in making selections for the landscape.

The Earth–Kind® Plant Selector allows for three methods of searching for plants:

1. Search By Criteria

This allows the searching of plants based on the information provided in the search form. This generates a listing of plants based on said criteria and then sorts by the Earth–Kind® index in descending order.

2. Show ALL Plants for Region

This provides a listing of every plant in the database within the associated region. This listing is sorted by the Earth–Kind® index in descending order.

3. Quick Listing

This is a quick listing of plants in the database within the associated region with an Earth–Kind® index of 8 or greater. This listing is sorted by the Earth–Kind® index in descending order.
