New Plants for 2023

One of the benefits of joining AHS is receiving The American Gardener, our award-winning magazine published six times a year exclusively for AHS members. It showcases insightful, educational stories and regional events for novice and master gardeners.  

We’d like to share one of the articles with everyone: “New Plants for 2023,” by Clair Splan. She shares what new plants readers should watch for in 2023. Colorful annuals, adaptive perennials, persistent shrubs, and tasty edibles are all forthcoming. 

Splan writes, “Most of these plants have been carefully hybridized to meet a particular need, such as improved hardiness, a more desirable size or form, better or longer blooming, or increased diseased resistance. Some may be heritage varieties that had disappeared from production long ago and are being brought back to a gardening community that has become more appreciative of plants with a pedigree.”  

Read the full article. 

AHS is proud to be America’s resource for gardening, and this article and these new plant species deserve your attention. No matter where you garden throughout the country, we’re sure you’ll find something to add to your garden!
