OSU Annuals Trial Open Houses

Jul 12, 2014, 5:00pm - 6:30pm

OSU Annuals Trial Open Houses

OSU’s Annual Trial Garden is where YOU can get info on annuals to include in your sales plans.  We at the OSU Annuals Trials, will have a couple of open houses for you to evaluate the performance of numerous plants in ground beds, containers in the sun and shade, and hanging baskets.

Growers, independent garden center buyers, landscape designers, and installers are encouraged to visit and take note of the new varieties being grown. You can also observe and study the different growth habits, tolerances, and visual characteristics of the many different varieties that have been put on display. In addition, 2014’s trial celebrates the “Year of the Phlox.” Attendees will have access to the Ornamental Plant Germplasm Center’s Phlox collection, displays, and research.  On top of that, visitors will have an opportunity to enjoy the newly inaugurated Howlett hall “green roof”.

July 12 and 14

Are you coming to the AmericanHort Cultivate 14?  If so, you will be able to take a bus (courtesy of AmericanHort) at the Columbus Convention center which will bring you to campus.  Please, check the Cultivate 14 program for details.  If you come on Monday July 14, we will have a reception sponsored by Blooms of Bressingham and the organization of the Chadwick Arboretum.
