Afterwards, the Flower Trial Gardens

After enjoying the three exhibits, head outside to tour our beautiful Annual Flower Trial Gardens. The entire garden is planted with annuals from late May through October.

The outdoor display and test areas at the Annual Flower Trial Garden were established to allow students, researchers, industry representatives, homeowners and extension personnel to learn, teach and evaluate through horticultural research and demonstration projects conducted in the unique environmental conditions of the Rocky Mountain/High Plains region.
