The Plant Trial Database, created in 2012, now has plant trialing data to share with the industry.

After two trialing seasons, the Plant Trials Database includes ratings on more than 1,000 varieties of annuals, a number that is expected to grow as additional breeding companies participate and as additional categories, such as perennials and edibles, are added to the system.

The initial concept of an online repository of trialing data came out of a collaboration between All-America Selections and the University of Georgia and was supported by the following breeding companies:

  • American Takii
  • Danziger “Dan” Flower Farm
  • Dummen Group/Fides
  • Ernst Benary of America
  • Floranova Ltd.
  • PanAmerican Seed/Ball Horticultural
  • Proven Winners
  • Sakata Ornamentals
  • The Suntory Collection
  • Syngenta Flowers

This past year, approximately 11 trial gardens were active participants inputting trial data on the varieties supplied by the sponsoring breeders.

The data can be accessed by industry members at www.planttrials.org.
