American Garden Award Announces 2014 Contestants

American Garden Award is pleased to announce that the American public will soon be able to vote on their favorite flower from the four entries in the 2014 contest.

The four entries are:

Celosia ‘Arrabona Red’ – PanAmerican Seed
Cuphea ‘Sriracha Violet’ – Syngenta Flowers
Digiplexis (Foxglove) ‘Illumination Flame’ – Cultivaris
Petunia ‘Sanguna Radiant Blue’ – Syngenta Flowers



By early June, the 32 public gardens participating in the American Garden Award will have all four entries planted and ready for the public to view and vote on their favorite. This program is the nation’s only flower popularity contest and is a unique opportunity for the public to vote on a specific flower that they think has the most appeal.

After May 1 (and up until September 30) there will be three ways to vote:
1) By texting a given code to a polling number
2) By going to and clicking on the flower of choice
3) By using postage-paid voting postcards located at the garden.
