2016 All-America Selections Flower Display Garden

Burlington (VT) Waterfront Park

 

The All America Selections (AAS) is a national program to select the best of the new varieties each year.  The flowers below represent some of the most recent winners and other new introductions, and are primarily annuals. (www.all-americaselections.org)  Previous year’s results and photos can be found online. (perrysperennials.info/AASwp.html)  

 

We are especially pleased and thankful this year once again for many new “specialty annuals” (those generally grown from cuttings and not seeds) provided by two wholesale greenhouse propagators in New Hampshire—Pleasant View Gardens (PVG) and DS Cole Growers (DSC), as well as recent  AAS annuals from cuttings (“vegetative”).  The PVG annuals are from their Proven Winners and Proven Selections series.  Those from DSC are from several other brand name series.
