Great resources for gardening in the lower Midwest

My all-time favorite gardening website is that of the Missouri Botanical Garden.  I'm a frequent visitor to the Plantfinder and Plants of Merit databases accessible on its Gardening Help page as I look for trees, shrubs, and perennials that are well suited for our USDA plant hardiness zone.

I haven't yet visited this famous St. Louis attraction, but I have spent the day at the Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest just south of Louisville.  It's trails and test gardens are another treasure trove for gardening information and ideas here in the Ohio River Valley.
