It has been over 30 years since anyone has produced a truly comprehensive review of house plant and interior landscaping varieties. This project started in 2000 by horticultural taxonomist Larry Hatch and the New Ornamentals Society has matured and is now available for the first time to the public in 2015.
Hatch's Perennials 3.1 was expanded to produce a truly valuable discussion of today's best cultivars, their histories, and details that make each cultivar unique (or not).
HITS is the long-term project of horticultural taxonomist Larry Hatch and is the first time in over three decades that a comprehensive guide to interior plant cultivars has been attempted. More than 10 years and 1000 pages later, HITS is now offered to the general public.
First listing of new landscape plants (trees, sbrubs, vines, conifers, hardy perennials, annuals, bedding plants, tropical, house plants, and bulbs) from the 100% free, no delay cultivar registration process called Open Registration Of Cultivars (OROC). This 100 page listing covers scores of new plants from 2010 to 2014 from all over the world.

It is available in many formats including this PDF ebook, a website, JPG image, HTML table, and a variety of searchable and sortable spreadsheets like Open Office Calc and Excel. A new set of abbreviations makes it handy to use the system in reviews or describing hybrid brewing styles or when blending your own beer. A set of suffix codes specify specific treatments like as (B) bourbon wood aging, (UN) unfiltered, and (BO) for bottle conditioned.
Lacking an active, effective international process and accomplishment in cataloging new woody plants, the OROC program serves as the only active means of 100% free communication of these new landscape plants. In our role with the assistance of Cultivar.org, we continue to seek new ornamental plants and document their traits, history, and parentage.
