Love This? Plant These, Too!
Companions for Our Plants of the Year
It’s a Major Award—but you’re the one who wins! Each year, National Garden Bureau selects five top-performing plants, designating them with the “Year of” status. One edible, one annual, one perennial, one bulb, and one shrub achieve the coveted “Year of” status. For 2021, we’ve designated the Garden Bean, Sunflower, Hyacinth, Monarda, and Hardy Hibiscus as plants that you simply must add to your planting plans.
These popular, easy-to-grow, widely adaptable, genetically diverse, and versatile plants belong in every garden. But how do you incorporate them into your landscape, pairing them with companion plants that will ensure their success and make your garden look and perform fabulously?
