Perry's Perennial Pages

Garden of the Month,  October 2003

University of Maine Flower Trials 


The Rogers Farm  in Old Town, near the Orono campus, in addition to agronomic and vegetable research, is home to over an acre of trial gardens.  Much of this is a demonstration garden run by about 50 Master Gardener volunteers each year, and features several gardens including perennials, annuals, and herbs.  A few sample photos are below from the August 2002 field day.  There is also an All America selections display garden run by Dr. Lois Stack, as well as trials of hardy shrub roses.
