Finding the right plant for any space in the garden helps tie everything together, minimizes maintenance and ensures seamless beauty and use. The trick is in vetting the plant to make sure it not only is the right size, color, and variety, but also fits in your zone, soil type and exposure. Bluestone Perennials takes the guesswork out of figuring all this out with a handy plant finder feature available on their website. All you have to do is answer a handful of questions and you’ll get a number of suggestions for the perfect plant.

Bluestone Perennials is a second generation, family owned, customer-friendly operation. They provide a 100 % guarantee on their selections, use eco-friendly coir pots, and provide gardening tips for novice to expert gardeners. In addition to helping you find the perfect plant, you can be comforted by their ecologically responsible growing and shipping, combined with helpful online and direct contact customer services. With the unparalleled guarantee, the company either refunds or reships immediately, providing carefree shopping.

The plant finder is a godsend for those hard to define planting sites. For instance, if you live in USDA zone 4 and have sandy soil in a partially shady area, you simply enter those facts and a list of potential plants will come up. If you want to narrow it further, such as finding a blooming plant or shrub, add that too. A wide variety of suitable plants will appear like magic. Entering the above information results in a number of beautiful options that include hellebores, lacy ferns, and heuchera. And in a zone 8, acidic soil, full sun location, you’ll find boldly colored lupine, whimsical anemone, sweet smelling phlox and collections of Hemerocallis to be just some of magnificent plants from which to choose.

Once you have the optimal plant or plants, they will arrive in protective cardboard sleeves and boxes that are recyclable or biodegradable. The coir pots can go right into the ground, reducing transplant shock and allowing oxygen to penetrate and promote healthy root growth. Over time, these amazing pots will degrade into the soil. Bluestone Perennials is a leader in the industry in reducing plastic waste and promoting a cleaner, greener future. The family owned operation is backed by long-term, loyal employees who hand pack each plant and inspect it for health. Your new plant will arrive healthy and ready to install with minimal packing that you can compost or put into your municipal recycle bin.

Every plant is different and requires very specific growing conditions. It can be very exciting selecting new plants but a little daunting too. With the Bluestone Perennials plant finder, however, you have the perfect partner to ensure your gardening success.
