Founded in 1999, the Athens Select program is a collection of unique heat- and humidity-tolerant plant varieties selected by Allan Armitage at the University of Georgia Trial Gardens and propagated from virus-indexed stock by members of the Athens Select Marketing Association.
The Southern Living Plant Collection, first introduced in spring 2008, provides gardeners with innovative new plants designed to solve specific landscape challenges. Each plant in the collection is the result of years of plant evaluations, plant trials and consumer research.
