As the trees around campus begin to bloom, so do the flowers planted in the Annual Flower Trial Gardens located by the University Center for the Arts. Only a small section of the garden has been planted, and most will be planted in late May, according to the Flower Trials website.

The purpose of the garden is to test the growth of different species of perennials in the High Plains Region. The flowers offer a beautiful place to walk, study, or enjoy a picnic with friends. It’s open to the public 24 hours a day free of charge.

Judging of the violas and pansies will take place on Wednesday, April 20th from 9am-11am in the gardens. The public is welcome to help judge.
