Emeritus Plants of Merit -- MOBOT

The Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis is one of the most beautiful gardens I've seen personally. They have a fantastic program to recognize outstanding plants named Plants of Merit. Anything off the basic list is highly recommended for the St. Louis area which is pretty true for the Kansas City area.

The superstars of this program are classified as Emiretus Plants of Merit. I was enthralled at each of the categories especially so with the shrubs. So many times you find a shrub named in gardening media, their ultimate size is way too large for the average sized garden. But so many of the shrubs were compact and I know I will use many of them in future landscape projects. So check it out before next spring!
