Landscape Color Trial Garden

Located adjacent to the Herbaceous Garden, the Color Trial/All-American Selections Garden features bold sweeps of annual color, combining the newest cultivars with a display of All-American Selections winners that have proven outstanding in national evaluations. The garden offers both home gardeners and industry professionals a chance to observe how up-and-coming plant selections can enliven the landscape with minimal maintenance. For plant suppliers, the garden provides information about how their new selections fare in the mid-Atlantic climate.

UDBG staff conducts bi-weekly evaluations throughout the summer to rate each plant on its performance. Click on the link below to access results and other information for each year.
