Alaska Plant Selection Guide


The Alaska Plant Selection Guide will identify the most suitable plants for gardens and open spaces throughout Alaska’s diverse landscapes. Trees, shrubs and other landscaping plants vary considerably in their ability to tolerate different site conditions, selecting the right plant for the right place increases the likelihood for plant survival. This tool focuses on plants that thrive in Alaska, from Zone 1 in the Interior and parts of Southcentral, to Zones 6 and 7 in Southeast Alaska. Plant information for this Guide has been developed cooperatively by the Alaska Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, the University of Alaska Cooperative Extension Service, and the State of Alaska Department of Natural Resources Community Forestry Program.
