Top performing annuals in Michigan State trials

Each year, the Michigan State University Horticulture Demonstration Gardens evaluates hundreds of new annuals grown from seed or cuttings. The performance of each plant in the trials is evaluated bi-weekly by Department of Horticulture staff on vigor, uniformity, ornamental value-flowers and foliage.

Fifteen plants had an average rating of 5.0 (best performer) for the entire 2012 season. This list included a bidens, three gomphrena, two lobularias, an ornamental millet, three petunias, three SunPatiens and a torenia.
