The Oregon Garden was chosen as one of 23 public gardens nationwide to display flowers for the American Garden Award competition this May. Visitors can vote on their favorite flowers right in Silverton, through the end of August.
The 80-acre botanical garden will display seven new flower varieties that are competing in the program, including everything from a Dahlia to an ornamental pepper.
“We are honored to be selected as a display garden by such a prestigious organization,” said Heather Desmarteau-Fast, horticulture manager for The Oregon Garden. “This is a great opportunity for the public to vote and influence what plants will be available in stores and nurseries.”
