Extension booklets to help Wyoming residents diversify their landscapes.

Two University of Wyoming Extension publications to help Wyomingites diversify their landscapes are now available for download as a PDF or ePub format.

“Adding annuals and perennials is a great way to add color and interest to a landscape,” said Chris Hilgert, statewide Master Gardener coordinator and co-author.

Landscaping: Flowering Annuals for Wyoming, outlines the various species and cultivators available for Wyoming climates.

Landscaping: Herbaceous Perennials for Wyoming,, gives tips on raising dozens of different plants and discusses soil and bed preparation, planting, water, mulching, fertilizing, staking, pests, fall clean-up and winter care.

Established perennials are drought tolerant, fairly low maintenance and will continue to bloom for many years, shared Hilgert.

“Now a good time to start planning for those flowering plants,” said Karen Panter, Extension horticulture specialist and co-author.
