Plant of the Month: Lonicera korolkowii ‘Floribunda’

Lonicera korolkowii 'Floribunda'... this Plant Select® shrub is always a winner.

CASE STUDY: COLORADO RESIDENCE

With over 2,500 shrubs and perennials on the project, the plant list tool in The Plantium helped organize and track 8 different conceptualized planting bed designs among 28 total beds. It was also a lifesaver when it came time to procure material and substitutions were being made left and right. I could search for suitable substitutions, verify contractor-suggested substitutions, and make notes on everything that was accepted. Between building the list and working through the contractor substitutions, The Plantium saved us at least 16 hours on the planting design and installation process.
