2023 University of Minnesota Summer Trials

Public Trial

West central Minnesota represents a very distinct climate for annual flower trials. The Morris area typically has hot, dry summers with exposure to wind, which provides a unique opportunity to compare performance of bedding-plant cultivars under regional conditions. Visitors are encouraged to take note of the new varieties, and observe and study growth habits, tolerances and visual characteristics of the many varieties on display. The garden is open to public daily from dawn until dusk; admission is free.
