AAS Announces Four New Winners
All-America Selections has announced four new and exciting AAS winners for the 2021 garden season.
All AAS winners are trialed throughout North America by professional, independent, volunteer judges who grow new, never-before-sold entries next to comparisons that are considered best-in-class. Only those entries that had superior garden performance better than comparisons are granted the AAS award designation.
The newest set of winners are:
- Echalion ‘Créme Brulee’, bred by Bejo Seeds (Regional Winner: Southeast, Great Lakes, West/Northwest)
- Leucanthemum ‘Sweet Daisy Birdy’, bred by Dümmen Orange (Regional Winner: Mountain/Southwest)
- Pepper ‘Pot-a-peño’, bred by PanAmerican Seed (Regional Winner: Great Lakes, West/Northwest)
- Zinnia ‘Profusion Red Yellow Bicolor’, bred by Sakata (National Winner)
Growers, retailers and consumers will find these AAS winners for sales as supply becomes available through the distribution chain.
Each of the new AAS winners are now featured in custom videos that can be found in social media posts and on the AAS YouTube channel.
All winners are marketed through social media, public relations and trade shows and are grown in 190 AAS Display Gardens across North America. In addition, the AAS office creates and maintains a wide variety of marketing pieces and resources, such as printable brochures, bench cards, PowerPoint presentations and more.
