The theme this year was "Geometry in the Garden" and the creative way these display gardens utilized shapes of all dimensions, sizes and angles was a delight to the eye and the imagination! Your readers will be energized to begin planning their next year garden when taking a look at these garden displays and AAS winners.

In 2012, All-America Selections (AAS) launched a contest for its nearly 200 Display Gardens to encourage new and exciting landscaping ideas using AAS Winners. Five years in, enthusiasm for the contest has continued to grow, helping bring more inspiration and excitement for gardening to the general public.

This contest is a landscape design contest using AAS Winners announced in the last five years with the option to incorporate more than 80 years worth of past AAS Winners. AAS Winners offer gardeners reliable new varieties of flowers and vegetables that have proved their superior garden performance in Trial Grounds across North America.

All-America Selections is pleased that such a broad range of garden types have participated in the contest for 2015: large and small public gardens, seed companies, community gardens, master gardener programs and university gardens. All-America Selections sends kudos to all the participating gardens and their creative efforts to produce an attractive display of AAS Winners.
