The internet is our main source for information about new and interesting plants, as well as new information about all the old standbys. Here is a list of some of our favorite plant and gardening websites. To demonstrate the different types of information you can find on them, we have included sample links to each site showing how each one describes the same plant (Callicarpa americana, or American Beautyberry).

Please check back often - and feel free to send us suggestions if we don't list a site you just can't live without!
