2014 All-America Selections (AAS) Flower Winners

As you plan your gardens for 2014, be sure to include a few or all of the All America Selection Flower Winners. They are tested throughout the U.S. and Canada and selected for their unique qualities and suitability for the home garden.
 
Gaura is a wonderful long blooming perennial that is often grown as an annual.  The delicate flowers float above the foliage.  Sparkle White is an early flowering gaura with a more controlled growth habit.
 
Petunia ‘African Sunset’ has eye-catching flowers in shades of orange. Uniform growth habit and long season of bloom made this a judges’ favorite.
 
The naturally dwarf Suntastic Yellow with Black Center sunflower is the smallest sunflower currently on the market; great for small spaces, containers and even window boxes. It produces up to 20 5 to 6 inch flowers per stem in three successive bloom periods.
 
A bit more information: 2014 marks the first year All American Selections Winners are including regional flowers and vegetables. The plants were trialed and selected as outstanding performers for the specific areas of the country.  For more information, check out their website at http://www.aaswinners.com/winners/.
