Open to the public, the American Garden Award is a unique opportunity to vote for your favorite from four varieties.

| May 21, 2010

Downers Grove, Illinois – Voting for the 2010 The American Garden Awards is now open. AGA, sponsored by All-America Selections, is a unique opportunity for the general public as well as professional horticulturists to vote on a specific flower or plant that they think has the most appealing garden characteristics.  Some of the world's most prestigious flower breeders have chosen their best varieties to enter into this competition (varieties listed below).  In cooperation with 18 highly respected public gardens throughout the United States, listed below, All-America Selections presents the four entries so garden visitors can view the plants in person, then vote for their favorite.

There are a number of ways to vote: by texting a given code to a polling number, by going to the website and clicking on the voting button, by using postage-paid voting postcards available at most gardens or by becoming a fan of American Garden Award on Facebook. For anyone who is unable to visit one of the 18 gardens, online voting is another way to "View and Vote!"  All gardens will be planted by the first of June and voting is open until August 31. The winners will be announced in September.

The four entries are:

Echinacea 'Prairie Splendor'; Ornamental Pepper 'Purple Flash'; Rudbeckia 'Denver Daisy'; and Zinnia Profusion 'Knee-High Red.'

To purchase any of these flowers for your home garden, visit your local garden retailer.
