After five months of voting, the 2014 American Garden Award Winners have been announced. This is the sixth year for the American Garden Award flower popularity contest, and 2014 featured four new flower varieties chosen by their breeders for excellent garden performance.
Once these varieties were planted and put on display at the thirty-two participating gardens across the U.S. and Canada, the general public was invited to vote for their favorite using one of several voting methods.
The top three winners, based on online voting, in-garden votes and text votes are:
- Digiplexis (foxglove) ‘Illumination Flame’ By Cultivaris, Inc. – Grand Prize Winner
- Petunia ‘Sanguna Radiant Blue’ By Syngenta Flowers, Inc. – Second Place Winner
- Celosia ‘Arrabona Red’ By PanAmerican Seed, Inc. – Third Place Winner
