"World famous Dr. Allan Armitage has developed a new gardening app for Android and iPhone platforms. Armitage’s Greatest Perennials & Annuals app spans the gap between the horticultural industry and consumers. Dr. Armitage selects his favorite annuals and perennials, letting readers know why he chose them and provides hints for success in the home landscape. iPhone users can filter annuals or perennials and select sun, shade or USDA zones. A unique and popular feature is the deer browsing rating for all plants. Numerous photos and videos supplement the plant-specific information."
That gets my attention!
