American Garden Award

Voting Open for 2011!
After almost 11,000 consumers voted in the 2010 American Garden Award contest, the
program is back and bigger than ever for 2011. There are now twenty-four participating
public gardens displaying seven stunning new varieties for the gardening public to
choose as their favorite. All twenty four Display Gardens can be found listed on the
AGA website.

All gardens will wait until their local safe-planting date to install the entries and make
them available for viewing by garden visitors, who can then vote on their favorite.
There are three ways to vote:
1. By texting a given code to a polling number found on signage in the gardens.
2. By clicking HERE to vote now!
3. By using postage-paid voting postcards located at most gardens.
The seven entries are:
Dahlia ‘Dahlinova Hypnotica®Lavender’
Dianthus ‘Kahori®’

Ornamental Pepper ‘Uchu™’ 

Petunia ‘Easy Wave™ Neon Rose’ 

Petunia milliflora ‘Picobella™ Rose Star’ 
Scaevola ‘Surdiva® Light Blue’ 

‘SunPatiens® Variegated Spreading White’ 

Voting is open May 13 – August 31 and winners are announced in September.
In the meantime, any or all of these flowers are available at your local garden retailer. Ask for them by name!
