The purpose of the trial program conducted at the Annual Flower Trial Garden is to evaluate the performance of different annual plant cultivars under the unique Rocky Mountain environmental conditions. I rode a bike around Ft. Collins on a beautiful September afternoon and enjoyed walking through the gardens viewing all the... More

My mom loves plants so this was a must see for us. We saw a bunch of different annuals and took lots of pics; looked to be a great green space for people to enjoy; some parking available (we went early) but imagine parking could be tricky.

We happened to hit it right for the blooms. It is a beautiful garden, well maintained. We didn't have any problem finding parking. It really was a joy to walk through and take many pictures. It was great stop in Ft Collins.

We weren't expecting to find such a spectacular flower garden next to the campus. Great photo opportunity!

Great place to take relatives; the kids can careen around and the flowers are lovely. You can make notes for your own garden or just stroll around and have something innocuous to discuss in a tempestuous election year. Lots of parking, but be sure you aren't in a spot that's reserved for residents or others.

You can spend hours choosing next year's new, but tried and true plants for Colorado climate and soils. Many in pots. A lovely display. Incredible color. Not to be missed.

Our son is going to major in horticulture and this was one of the stops on our tour. Absolutely beautiful. Great place to go with younger kids too.

Beautiful display of annuals in summer! Walked around while waiting for my CSU student and took some awesome photos. Arts center across the street is a lovely building, with art exhibits. Worth a stop!

Wonderful gardens to walk around in - there are frequently lots of butterflies and the colors can't be beat! Free and lots of parking nearby - we always visit when we come to Fort Collins. Flowers and plants are sorted by the amount of light and moisture they need - wonderful!

Thank Elizabeth H
