For 20 years, we have recognized outstanding contributions in advancing flower varieties through our Medal of Excellence awards program. Our traditional award for breeding, the Editor’s Choice, reaches this special milestone this year. The Industry’s Choice is determined by our well-rounded panel and this same slate of nominees will be voted on by you, our readers, to determine our Reader’s Choice Award. Eligible varieties are chosen from among the new introductions at the California Pack Trials. We also will present our Industry Achievement Award to German flower breeder Benary and our Marketer of the Year award to Hermann Engelmann Greenhouses for its Exotic Angel Plants brand on July 14 during a reception at the OFA Short Course in Columbus, Ohio.
