Explore the List


10 Plants-Natalie and Andy.png

Andy Pulte and Natalie Bumgarner of the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture spent much of 2018 developing the Ten Plants That Shaped Tennessee. More than 600 nominations were submitted, and submissions were open to the public. Together with a panel of other UTIA experts in a range of fields, all the nominations were weighed, and each nomination’s significance was carefully considered to develop the final list of 10 plants that most influenced the state. At the heart of the project is a love of Tennessee and a desire to communicate the importance of plants for everyone.
