AAS Launches Landscape Design Contest
All-America Selections, an independent plant trialing and award program, has announced there will be 22 AAS Display Gardens participating in the first-ever AAS Landscape Design Contest.
By participating, these gardens will help All-America Selections celebrate their 80th anniversary by using past and present AAS Winners (both flowers and vegetables if desired) in a creative landscape design located within their gardens.
The contest criteria requires that each display have a minimum of 50 percent of the total landscaped area be AAS Winners and labeled with the variety name and the AAS logo, if possible.
