UGA trial gardens

I went to Athens this morning, to take a look at the plants growers will focus on in the coming winter and retail nurseries will have for sale next spring. Lots and lots of "good stuff". Here, in the mid-foreground, is a bed of red and white Vinca. There were gorgeous Geraniums, spectacular varieties of Coleus (ask for "Gold Brocade" at your favorite nursery - your garden should not be without it!), beautiful double Impatiens, a "Lanai Peach" Verbena, Angelonias in white, blue, lavender and pink, and a Rusellia hybrid that made quite a splash. Check the Athens Select web site for more information.
