This is a wonderful garden to see in the spring, summer and fall. They have on display all flowering plants that will survive in the climate zone of the Fort Collins area. It is part of the Colorado State University Extension Program of Master Gardeners. We like to get a lunch to go and then visit the garden. There is... More

Do not go to the garden now. It's done for the season. There's no flowers left. I'm sure it looks nice in the summer. Nothing to see right now though.

I like to take picture of the flowers and name tags to save for future reference. The gardens are small, but very accessible.

We really enjoyed walking thru the garden. Took lots of photos of plants we'd like to have in our yard!

The first time I saw this place, I told my husband to stop the car at once! It is a wonderful place to visit several times during the growing season. Truly a Zen experience, and a place we bring visitors.

This CSU annual garden is spectacularly beautiful from May through October. It has all annuals labeled. It is organized by variety and color! A spectacular backdrop for photos of any event and a treat for any photographer or lover of color or plants. There are also perennials around the borders and across the street which are also labeled.

My sister visited this July and we took her through the gardens because we had been there when we moved here and so enjoyed it. She is an avid gardener and fell in love with all of the gorgeous and different flowers and plants and the work that went into this place.

A nice quiet stroll among some beautiful flowers! We have visited previously in the month of June, and expected less of a show in October, but were not disappointed. If you are a plant/flower lover, you will enjoy.

Annual Flower Trial Garden (Bursting with Color) This place is a feast for the eyes if you like flowers with lots of color. I couldn't believe all the different varieties that are grown in Colorado. Evidently they are doing something right as it was very beautiful. Plan on a good 2 hours & don't overlook the shade garden.

This is a place where the CSU horticultural program plants seeds from various seed companies to see how they perform under Northern Colorado conditions. So you will see patches of 10 different white petunias, patches of 10 different red petunias, and patches of 10 different blue petunias, etc. all side-by-side. It is pretty to look at and for the real... More
