This All-American Selections Display Garden Bed features "Verbena EnduraScape™ which is described as “tough as nails” because it is the first verbena that can tolerate drought and heat plus survive cooler temperatures down to the low teens. This long-blooming pink bicolor verbena is spectacular in the landscape, edging a walk or border as well as in large containers and baskets. Vigorous plants are sturdy spreaders that pop with abundant soft pink blossoms that darken in intensity toward the center of the bloom. Pink Bicolor is the newest color in the series and the AAS Judges deemed it truly spectacular!"
This is part of a series of blog posts featuring the All-American Selections Display Gardens.
What is All-American Selections? As written on their website: “All-America Selections is an independent non-profit organization that tests new, never-before-sold varieties for the home gardener. After a full season of anonymous trialing by volunteer horticulture professionals, only the top garden performers are given the AAS Winner award designation for their superior performance.” The Spooner Teaching and Display Garden is one of eight AAS display gardens in Wisconsin.
Come to the Spooner Teaching and Display Garden to see over 600 plants that have been planted in the display beds. The planting of both the display and vegetable beds is now complete and each day there is more to see as the season progresses.
The Teaching and Display Garden can be found on Orchard Lane and is located 1.5 miles east of Spooner on State Highway 70 or 1/2 mile west of Highways 70/53 interchange. It is open to the public daily in the growing season during daylight hours.
