HOW CAN THIS BE FREE?

First of all, the mission of the NEW ORNAMENTALS SOCIETY (NOS) is to provide the high volume of quality cultivar information to as many people as possible for the least cost ,using the best technology. 100% free to everyone in the world pretty much meets that goal. With over 1215 pages of expert-reviewed content and thousands of images that can display on most any computer, PDA, or phone we hope to deliver the high quality information to millions worldwide.

Secondly, funds to continue to improve and update the files come from 1) members of the NEW ORNAMENTALS SOCIETY and 2) our generous advertisers who make this all possible. There will be more about both in the near future.

Larry Hatch has generously agreed to make the files downloadable free of charge to any interested user who abides by the terms of use and copyright. We have needed an international standard for perennial nomenclature for many years; one that actually covers most of the world's cultivars and not just a few favorites of some author in a single country.
HELP FOR NEW USERS

First of all, you need a PDF reader to view the links above. The following are sources of free or low cost readers:

After loading a file from the above menu, click the diskette icon (or otherwise select file-save) to keep a copy on your computer or device. Be patient since the files are very large and many take several minutes to download and save.

If the text and photos are hard to read, magnify or enlarge the text up to 350%. Some readers only allow enlargement up to 200% so you may need to upgrade to a better product.

HOW TO SUBMIT ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, AND COMMENTS

Write us at ornamentals@lycos.com . Additions of new plants are free to advertisers and members of the New Ornamentals Society.

Links to new plants or nurseries are only available to advertisers and Corporate or Sponsor Level members of the NOS. Due to the number of requests we cannot consider link, banner, or ad exchanges.

PROMOTE YOUR NURSERY OR NEW PERENNIAL

With thousands of existing users (and now more that it's free!), Hatch Perennials 1.0 is quickly becoming the place to have your nursery or plant seen among the world's buying public. And unlike books, CDs, and DVDs, we offer clickable links to purchase a plant immediately or go to your nursery site for more research. Someone can see a plant, want it, and then buy it within a minute or two, no waiting, no delays.

You will also reach a virtual "Who's Who" of garden writers, experts, and educators who in turn will share information with their audiences.  Since 1993 the New Ornamentals Society has been the insider's source of new and rare plant information and you can benefit from this service even more today.

We are offering clickable icon links both from this menu and individual genera pages. You may also sponsor a particular genus for as little as $250 a year and be the exclusive ad in that section. Because we use a large PDF format, we also offer half and full page ads for your nursery and new plant from any or all our files - the same files that thousands will be carrying with them EVERYWHERE on their iPhones, Blackberries, Palms, and other devices. Your new plant can have an entire page in the middle of encyclopedia where users go to learn about that genus or species.

Don't have your ads stuck in book on a dusty shelf or a magazine that is browsed just once! Email us as ornamentals@lycos.com for rates and opportunities. You can also tell us what your vision is and what customers you want to reach.
