Landscape and Greenhouse - UDBG Color Garden Evaluations

The University of Delaware Botanic Gardens did evaluations of annuals and tender perennials for summer color this past year. Information from those trials is now available on-line. The following describes the landscape color trial and how you can access the results from the trial.

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.
