And, A Few Not-So-Great Plants


Our publisher says no to coreopsis. Which plants will you never plant again?

For the month of November, we offered up a list of 30 great plants for northern gardens. Many readers seemed to agree with the choices, but what about those not-so-great plants?

Northern Gardener publisher Tom McKusick offers his list of plants he will never grow again here: “Hollyhocks, foxglove, lupine, delphinium, hardy mum, astilbe, coreopsis, (though I hear there’s a new one that’s really great), pinks, (hate the foliage color) and poppy.”

What about you? Which plants will you never grow again!?
