Vegetative Comparison Trials


The winner of this year’s iTunes gift card drawing is….  Rod LeDrew!!  Please contact Laura at to claim your gift card.


Our fourth year of comparison trials has just wrapped up and the results are now out from our blind trial, which focused on breeder-designed combinations from seven different breeding companies this year.  The trial contained 325 combinations including entries of Confetti Garden Mixes (Dummen Orange), Garden Party Combos (Dummen Orange), Kwik Kombos (Syngenta Flowers), Mixis (Danziger), MixMasters (Ball Flora Plant), Passion Combos (Westflowers), Trixi Combos (Selecta), and new combinations from Suntory.

Every year we feature many combinations in our display garden that are either breeder-designed combinations that we carry in our young plant program or are what we affectionately call “DeBerti Creations” (combinations designed by our Head Grower, Michael DeBerti, that use various varieties from our program), but this year we wanted to really take a close look at how the breeder combinations shake out in terms of garden performance and providing color throughout the season.
