The All-America Selections Board of Directors met recently to approve two holdovers from previous trials as the first two winners for the 2013 gardening season.

The All-America Selections (AAS) Board of Directors met recently to approve two holdovers from previous trials as the first two winners for the 2013 gardening season. The two varieties selected are: Canna ‘South Pacific Scarlet’ F1 bred by Takii & Co. Ltd. and Echinacea ‘Cheyenne Spirit’ bred by Kieft Seed.

A July introduction is much more timely for various wholesalers in that they can better plan to include these two new AAS Winners in their offerings later this summer, into fall and winter.

These newest AAS Winners are available for immediate sale. Commercial growers should inquire with their seed suppliers.

AAS Winner tags are available from supporting tag suppliers. Consumers will find these seeds as supply becomes available in the coming months with catalog companies, in seed packets, from mail order companies and various websites.

AAS Winners will also be available as young plants in lawn & garden retail stores next spring.

Complete data sheets on these and all AAS Winners are available on the AAS website.
