Garden Walks Highlight UW’s All-America Garden


July 23, 2013 — Two walks describing the University of Wyoming All-America Selections (AAS) Display Garden are scheduled from 6:30-7:30 p.m. July 31 and Sept. 4, both Wednesdays, at UW.

The garden is just west of Old Main. The nearest cross-streets are Ninth and Ivinson, says host Karen Panter, UW Extension horticulture specialist. Most of the plants are annuals; however, Panter says the garden also has a few perennials. Some of the plants are highlighted at Panter’s blog www.karenpanter.wordpress.com.

The AAS Display Garden, the only one in Wyoming, contains some of the latest introductions of annuals, a few perennials and some vegetables from various seed companies to observe how they respond to southeast Wyoming’s climate, Panter says.

The same cultivars are planted throughout the United States in nearly 200 other AAS Display Gardens for climate-comparison purposes.
