This Week at Reiman Gardens


The votes have been tallied, and the results are in! Verbena ‘Lanai Candy Cane’ was voted the most popular flower for the 5th annual American Garden Award. Voters were able to view the entries at gardens across the United States and in Quebec. Repeat visitors to Reiman Gardens may remember rabbits continuously attacking our display of Verbena, and we had to erect rabbit fencing to allow the plants to display their unique blooms. Once the plants began to thrive, the majority of our visitors voted for those lovely pink and white blossoms! Second place went to Zinnia ‘Zahara Cherry’, and third went to Impatiens ‘SunPatiens Compact Electric Orange’. Thank you to everyone who viewed the display and took the time to place a vote. Way to make your voice heard!

The Winner is Verbena Lanai Candy Cane
