2002 All America Selections Flower Display Garden

Burlington Waterfront Park

The All America Selections (AAS) is a national program to select the best of the new varieties each year. This is done in about 30 trial gardens throughout North America. Although mainly annuals, perennials can be included if they are grown from seed and bloom the first year. The varieties proving new or better than similar existing ones are given the "All America Award", and are displayed in over 200 display gardens, such as this one. The flowers below (green labels) represent some of the most recent winners and other new introductions, and are primarily annuals. Perennials on display, not part of this program (black labels), can be found on a separate list.
