Which plants changed Minnesota and transformed how we live today? That was the big question behind a public education campaign led by the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. U of M Horticulture professor Mary Meyer spearheaded the initiative, partnering with the Arboretum, the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) and U of M Extension. After considering more than 100 different plants nominated by the public from early February through April 15, a panel of experts* met to determine the final top ten.
