Introduced in spring 2012, the Sunset Plant Collection was the first plant collection designed specifically for the Western gardener. Sunset® magazine and Plant Development Services collaborated to bring plant introductions to retail garden centers throughout California, Oregon, and Washington.
Since then, the Collection has grown into a comprehensive group of plant varieties ethically sourced to be easy-care and sustainable. Through breeder partnerships across the nation and around the globe, and collaborations with local growers, we are able to customize the Sunset Plant Collection to best meet the climatic differences and challenges of our diverse gardening regions.
Introducers of the best-selling reblooming azalea brand in the world, Encore® Azalea, and the popular Southern Living® Plant Collection, as well as the new BetterBoxwood® and Butterfly Candy® plant brands, Plant Development Services works with the world’s top growers and breeders to bring high impact plants to market.
Since 1898, Sunset has been a source of inspiration for those of us living in the West. With five million monthly readers, and more than 30 million copies of the Sunset Western Garden Book, Sunset is passionate about showcasing the region’s unique lifestyle and noteworthy destinations, inspiring people to achieve the dream of living in the West. Sunset’s experts focus on regional travel destinations, home design, outdoor living, gardening ideas, and recipes that celebrate the best of the West.
