"Annual Color Trials"
Bernadette Clark, Bedding Plant Trials Coordinator
- Wednesday, June 2, 2021 – 3:00 pm–4:00 pm
The Color Trials area at the JC Raulston Arboretum is an official All-America Selections (AAS) testing site for new cultivars of bedding plants, flowers, and cool season plants in North America. The newest varieties for bedding, hanging baskets, and containers are showcased and evaluated here. Fantastic year-round, the peak of color occurs June–August. Yearly, over 700 different perennials, annuals, and tender perennials are planted, and the performance of each plant is carefully evaluated each week. Bernadette Clark, the bedding plant trials coordinator, will take us through this year's trials and highlight some of her favorites in this online tour.
