There are many systems of categorizing plants; the most recognizable to horticulturalists is by grouping plants by their families. Designers sometimes place them in groupings of how they are used in the landscape. Landscape installers and growers often use plant sizes and growing containers as a method for classification.

For my residential designs I have used a combination of all of the above; first by the most common plant name type or size of the plant material. Then by landscape use or common family name. Therefore, botanical family names and some plants may be repeated within each of the plant size categories.
