Every year, new brighter, tastier, longer-blooming plants come on the market.  Introduced as All-America Selections, these plants have gone through rigorous growing trials, and taste tests.

Diane Blazek, who has the best job in the nation, explains exactly how the All-America Selections came about 85 years ago!

She also tells us about how plant breeders and even regular people can develop new plants through hybridization and submit them to AAS.  You’ll learn too, how genetical modification (or engineering) is not the same as hybridization.  And how important it is to keep hybridizing.

The new 2018 winners have just been announced, so look for them in your local nursery in 2018!  Or any nursery within your same climate zone–remember it could be growing in Ohio or Michigan.  Bring it home and grow it!
