Please Support the CSU Annual Trial Gardens

The purpose of the trial program conducted at the CSU Annual Flower Trial Garden is to evaluate the performance of different annual plant cultivars under our unique Rocky Mountain environmental conditions. Our growing conditions are characterized by high altitude, intense solar radiation, drying winds, severe hailstorms, large fluctuations between day and night temperatures and a season-long need for irrigation. Each year, our annual trial consists of over 1,000 different cultivars of annual bedding plants. The garden receives no operating dollars directly allocated from state funds, so maintenance of the garden and research funding comes in large part for our industry partners and from the generosity of our donors. As one of the most photographed places in Fort Collins, the garden is visited by thousands of people each year. It is a place of great beauty and of significant research.

Thank you for considering a gift to help support the CSU Annual Flower Trial Garden. Your gift will ensure the continued success of the garden. Please stop by and visit soon!
