Flower fans can get an eyeful of colour during the All-America Selections (AAS) Field Days 1997 at UBC Botanical Garden and Totem Park, July 18-20.
AAS is an international program that evaluates bedding plants grown from seeds. Plants are judged each year in trial grounds across North America and those with significant horticultural value may be declared winners. UBC is one of five trial grounds across Canada.
The Field Days provide an excellent opportunity for home gardeners, garden clubs, commercial bedding plant growers, and retail and landscape trades to see new plants. Plants on display will include seed-grown perennials, field-grown cut flowers and flowers in new colours, such as coral portulaca.
The garden is located on Marine Drive at West Mall (Gate 8). Field Days run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., July 18 to 20. Call 604-822-3928 for further information.
