The two Vegetative Winners are:

Impatiens SunPatiens® Spreading Shell Pink

Impatiens Bounce™ Pink Flame PPAF ‘Balboufink’

In addition, there are ten seed varieties that have earned the AAS Winner designation:

Regional Winners are:

Pepper Hot Sunset F1 (Southeast, Heartland and Great Lakes)

Tomato Chef’s Choice Pink F1 (Southeast and Great Lakes)

 

National Winners are:

Basil Dolce Fresca

“The AAS Judges, Board of Directors and staff are extremely excited to enter this new phase where we are now representing a wider cross section of the horticulture industry. This ushers in a whole new facet of our national trialing program.” states AAS President Ron Cramer.

With this announcement, these varieties become available for immediate sale. Brokers and growers can purchase these varieties immediately. Consumers will find these Winners for sale in the coming months as supply becomes available from suppliers. AAS Winners will also be available as young plants in lawn & garden retail stores next spring, in time for the 2015 gardening season.
