What's new in the Trial Gardens:

  Summer has come, bringing with it all its exuberance and heat. This season is our most difficult test for a plant to pass. With minimall rain, little cloud cover, and scorching sunshine, it takes a special plant to bloom all summer.

  This year's summer trials include new cultivars of Texas favorites such as: Lantana, Vinca, and Portulaca along with several new genera and mixed hanging baskets. If you are looking for plants that will do more than merely survive the summer, come check out the trial gardnes and meet the hardy blooms that love the heat.
