Eye-catching favorites from Welby Gardens' Plant Trials

Welby Gardens in Denver, CO, trialed just over 1,050 varieties at its open house event earlier this year. Around 400 people attended, with 250 individuals voting on their top five favorites. The top varieties shown in the slideshow above were the results of that voting.
