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 24 participating public gardens displaying seven stunning new varieties (produced from both seed and vegetative cuttings) for the gardening public to choose as their favorite. All 24 gardens can be viewed on the AGA website. The gardens will wait until their local safe-planning 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:

  • By texting a given code to a polling number
  • By going to www.americangardenaward.com and clicking on the voting button
  • By using postage-paid voting postcards at most gardens

Follow American Garden Award on Twitter (@AmerGardenAward) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/americangardenaward) to keep up with the voting results!

  • Dahlia ‘Dahlinova Hypnotica Lavender’ from Fides North America
  • Dianthus ‘Kahori’ from Fides North America
  • Ornamental Pepper ‘Uchu’ from American Takii

  • Petunia ‘Picobella Rose Star’ from Syngenta Flowers
  • Scaevola ‘Surdiva Light Blue’ from Suntory Flowers
