Southern Living® Plant Collection

Southern Living® Plant Collection

The Southern Living® Plant Collection was first introduced in Spring 2008. It is a partnership between PDSI® and Southern Living® magazine, with the goal to provide innovative new plants selected for their ability to solve specific landscape challenges.


Each plant in the Collection is the result of plant evaluations, trials, and research. The Collection is available through retail garden centers across the Southeast.
