What Are The Newest Plants This Year?

I am sure that TheGardenLady is not alone in wanting to know the newest plants developed for the garden each year.

Does TheGardenLady’s readers want to be the first in his/her area to have these new plants? Or is the gardener looking for just that special plant for just that special area in the garden – a new plant that might be deer resistant or color coordinated, like a hydrangea that changes from pale pink to emerald green, for the special garden or a  plant that grows a special height in the location planted.
