CSU Top Picks from the Annual Flower Trial Garden

by Dr. James Klett

Learn about the Colorado State University Annual Flower Trial Gardens and get a sneak peek at what will be offered at garden centers this year. James will discuss the winners from the 2010 trials including the Best of Show, Best New Variety and Novelty Plant. He will also discuss the Best Variety in 28 different annual flower categories. These will be the plants promoted by garden centers for the 2011 growing season. Learn more about the evaluation process and how these winners are chosen. Some of the top performers in the two new evaluation programs for new herbaceous perennials will also be presented.
