Here's how it works. Some of the world's most prestigious flower breeders choose their best varieties to enter in this competition. Then, in cooperation with over 24 highly respected public gardens throughout the United States, the American Garden Award presents the entries so consumers can view the plants in person, then vote on their favorite.
Here are the 2011 entries:
Dahlia ‘Dahlinova Hypnotica® Lavender’
Dianthus ‘Kahori®’ (pictured above)
Ornamental Pepper ‘Uchu™’
Petunia ‘Easy Wave™ Neon Rose’
Petunia milliflora ‘Picobella™ Rose Star’
Scaevola ‘Surdiva® Light Blue’
‘SunPatiens® Variegated Spreading White’
For those of you who are unable to make it to view these flowers in person, you can also vote online at www.americangardenaward.com.
Voting doesn't end until August 31st, so go ahead and cast your vote today! Winners will be announced in September. Let me know which one is your favorite!
The American Garden Award program is administered by the All-America Selections Display Garden program. AGA entries have not been trialed nor awarded a winner status by the AAS Trial Judges.
