Burden Center Botanical Garden is an All-America Selections Display Garden and American Award Garden located at 4560 Essen Lane, Baton Rouge, LA.

New plant selections for 2013 will be planted in All-America Selections (AAS) gardens throughout the United States. We are fortunate to have at Burden Center Botanical Garden, 4560 Essen Lane in Baton Rouge, both an AAS display garden and an American Award Garden which means people can come by and vote on their favorite plants. Voting will begin this spring.

The six new entries for 2013 to be voted on by the public are: Angelonia angustifolia Summer Snapdragon Serena Blue, Begonia boliviensis Santa Cruz, Gazania Big Kiss™ White Flame, Petchoa x Hybrida SuperCal Pink Ice PPAF, Petunia Surfinia Deep Red, and Sunflower Goldie F1. Voting will begin the first part of 2013.

The American Garden Award is a unique opportunity for the gardening public to vote on a specific flower that they think has the most appealing garden characteristics. Some of the world’s most prestigious flower breeders have chosen their best varieties to enter in this competition. Then, in cooperation with over 24 highly respected public gardens throughout the United States, we present the entries so consumers can view the plants in person and vote on their favorite.

For those consumers and home gardeners who are unable to make it to Burden Center Botanical Garden to view these flowers in person, please vote by emailing your choices to aas@aas-ngb.org.

Visit All-America Selections' (AAS) website to view the complete list of display gardens, award display gardens (AGA), and trial gardens throughout the United States.
