The Best New Plants for 2019

What to look for this year

Fine Gardening - Issue 187

New plants. Has there ever been a more alluring pairing of words for gardeners? My answer is a hearty N-O. Like most gardeners with a pulse, the staff here at Fine Gardening get so excited about new varieties being introduced that we sometimes have trouble focusing as the press releases and stunning photos roll in. This year’s crop of newbies did not disappoint. There are a couple of exciting and superhardy hydrangeas, a perennial and a shrub that are so fragrant you might be able to smell them through the pages (I wish we could ­afford scratch-and-sniff technology here at FG), and of course a plethora of cultivars with improved habits or disease resistance. The only problem with this year’s introductions is the room you’ll have to make in your garden (and budget) to have them.
