Vote for Your Favorite Flower (American Garden Awards)

Be a part of the American Garden Awards and vote for your favorite annual flower now through the end of August.

Some of the world’s most prestigious breeders are showing off a few of their best at seventeen highly respected public gardens.

These include the Compact Electric orange sunpatiens. Good in sun and shade the vibrant color is a standout in containers or gardens.

Cherry Zahara Zinnia is a fast growing, long blooming annual that has good disease resistance and is drought tolerant.

Surfinia Summer Double Pink petunia is heat and rain tolerant. And the unique red and white flower pattern of Verbena Lanai Candy Cane inspired this varieties name.

Stop by a participating public garden and text or mail in your vote. Or visit americangardenaward.org to see photos of the entries, find out more about each plant and to cast your vote.

A bit more information: Last year’s winner was the Santa Cruz Sunset Begonia. This cascading plant is perfect for hanging baskets, containers or mass plantings. The plentiful scarlet/orange blossoms brighten your garden and the plants are tolerant of full sun and partial shade, heat, drought and rain.
