If you are anything like me, you spend what might be deemed as a considerable amount of time admiring and researching plants. After all, that’s what brought us together here at ATP. The All-America Selections have been made for 2013 and include some wonderful plants to consider for the year.

I agree, all are beautiful but especially the zinnias! And those geraniums are too!

Great article Tee.
I will definitely be watching out for plants of Echinacea hybrida 'Cheyenne Spirit' this spring. I would love to have a more compact echinacea.

Beautiful selections for sure. Neil I have to ask, is that beautiful picture Iris cristata and is it blooming now?

Dear Evan, the plant is Iris reticulata and it is blooming now. It is bulbous and small, not a rhizome.
Glad you like it as we love them.
Regards Neil.
p.s a Tulip out now.
