2015 University of Tennessee Gardens (Knoxville and Jackson, Tenn.) Field Trials Results

The University of Tennessee in Knoxville had a great trialing season. While June was certainly hotter and drier than usual, July and August were cooler and wetter than normal, with the result being an exceptional growing season and a great display. With the great summer weather, there were very few of the more than 175 trials that performed poorly.
