2014 North Central Trial Garden

Kelsey Dwarf (MS LV/pr) took the award for highest score in the garden as well as first bloom on June 24 (just 3 weeks after planting!) and thrilled container enthusiasts with its season-long multitude of eye-catching flowers on neat, 2’x2’ plants. Hollyhill Rudolph (MB RD) followed early July and was very appealing to garden visitors with its floriferous, fire-engine red, globular blooms dotting dense foliage.

Clearview Sharon (B C YL) and Hollyhill Jeanette (BB C OR) popped from the garden with their striking cactus forms
