2015 Dallas Arboretum (Dallas, Texas) Field Trials Results

Trials at the Dallas Arboretum are conducted year round and include annuals, perennials and bulbs, with roughly 3,000 entries per year. Dallas had several snow and ice events this winter, followed by recordbreaking rainfall and very little sunshine in the spring. The rain stopped once summer hit, and during July and August there were multiple weeks with highs well over 100 degrees.
