Autumn in the Annuals Garden

Autumn in the Annuals Garden

A vast area of large and smaller beds bursting with color. Each year a different theme is designed. (Summer 2014′s design calls for a spirited red, white, and green combination.)

Among the annual beds, there are two that are large and double-tiered. These are All-America Selection (AAS) Display Gardens. All-America Selections is an independent, non-profit organization that tests new varieties, then introduces only the best performers as AAS winners. All the varieties in these beds have been designated AAS winners over the years. Petunia “African Sunset” has been designated flower winner for the year 2014.
