Virtual Tour: All American Awards and Fleuroselect Collections
Audio tour of the All American Awards and Fleuroselect collections by Mark Dwyer, Director of Horticulture.
In 2010 RBG will again feature All American Selections (AAS) award winning annuals and Fleuorselect award winning annuals. AAS has been around since 1933 and each year recommends both annuals and vegetables for consumers to purchase and grow in their yards. There are over 175 displays gardens in North America featuring AAS. In 2004 RBG won the national award for our AAS collection and in 2006 featured an historical display of many of the past AAS winners from 1933 to 2006.
Fleuroselect is the European counterpart to AAS… Started in the 1970’s Fleuroselect also promotes award winning seasonal plants. RBG is only one of six botanical gardens in the United States to feature this collection.
We have over 100,000 seasonal plants in the garden representing nearly 600 varieties.
