We’re nearing the end of the growing season here at 7200 feet. There have been some disappointments in the AAS garden this year, but there have also been some great successes. The canna ‘South Pacific Scarlet’ is finally in bloom (albeit on plants topping out at about 12 inches tall) and the zinnias, salvia, kale, and tomatoes have rallied beautifully!

Our next (and last) plant walk and talk is scheduled for Wednesday, September 4 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Join us!
