According to Bunny Williams, garden designer and author of On Garden Style, "Gardens begin in our hearts in our minds." Think about how important your personal style is to you; it's reflected in the way you dress and how you decorate your home. The same thoughts should go into your garden! Are you formal or informal? Frilly or earthy? This quiz will not only tell you how your personal style translates into your plant personality, but will recommend garden collections and individual plants to appeal to the inner you. Happy gardening!

Take the quiz and let us know what your garden personality is.

Your Plant Personality Is: Cottage Romantic
Let time pass as you dream about your home in the English countryside surrounded by blooming pink roses. You are a romantic at heart, and love the style of a garden that is as carefree as you are. Let your sentimentality play into your garden!

Enjoy heirloom flowers like daisies, black-eyed Susans and hollyhocks, or plant butterfly favorites like coneflowers, sage and yarrow. Either way, your garden will be a graceful yet free-spirited -- a perfect place for an afternoon picnic where you and your loved one can cuddle.

Your Plant Personality Is: Low Maintenance
Your bills sit unopened for months on a shelf, or you may not even be able to find your bills. You may have a houseplant or two, but the thought of committing to a garden that needs constant care to grow scares you. Don't panic. All you need is a little curiosity and enough room for a pot or two, we'll do the rest by pairing you with plants that you couldn't kill even if you tried. You'll marvel at Mother Nature's urge to grow with flowers and plants that thrive even without a lot of work by you.

With pink and yellow daylilies and the durable black-eyed Susan -- plants that will tolerate even the most absent-minded gardener -- you can create a beautiful garden. Then invite your friends over for a picnic of take-out Chinese, and awe them with your growing prowess!

Your Plant Personality Is: Asian/Zen
Sleek and chic, you feel more comfortable in simple but chic black pants than a pair of sweats. You enjoy a garden that is designed with the principles of Zen in mind -- tranquility through simplicity. You hate clutter, and your garden -- serene with clean lines of space -- will mix spirituality with order, just like you. With delicate irises and Japanese silver grass blowing in the wind, you'll love to relax in your garden and watch the world go by.

Yes to the clothes, no to the garden. It's a tiny tropical one too full of plants right now!
