Annual Flower Trials
Come view the Annual Flower Trials conducted by the Colorado State University Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture in Fort Collins. The trial garden consists of over twelve hundred varieties from many different plant/seed companies. Many of these new varieties will become available to growers in future years. All varieties are planted at a very visible site west of the Center for the Arts, located at the southeast corner of the CSU campus at 1401 Remington Street.
Plan to visit the side-by-side comparisons of new bedding plant varieties with standards (older proven varieties). The best viewing time is late July through killing frost.
