All-America Selections

Posted by John Fulton -

As you finish your garden and bed plans, it's always interesting to check out the new All-America selections. This year, all the winning varieties are available immediately. We could call 2010 the year of the zinnia, with three zinnias making the grade. They include "Double Zahara Cherry," "Double Zahara Fire," and Zahara Starlight Rose."

Additional winners include the coneflower "PowWow Wild Berry Echinacea," gaillardia "Mesa Yellow," marigold "Moonsong Deep Orange," snapdragon "Twinny Peach," viola " Endurio Sky Bule Martien," pepper "Cajun Belle," and watermelon "Shiny Boy." You can view these selections online at
