AAS Display Gardens provide the public with an opportunity to view the newest AAS Winners in an attractive well-maintained setting. A typical Display Garden is a public botanic garden or arboretum, a municipality, a garden retailer, a university garden and many others. Display Gardens may also provide educational programs about the AAS trialing and award process during “open house” or “field day” events during peak growing seasons.
The network of nearly 200 dedicated AAS gardens includes 55 locations that have served for 25 years or longer. The earliest AAS Display Garden, Norseco, Inc. of Quebec Canada became an AAS garden in 1962.
