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

What a treat to see the array of colors in September. This is definitely worth a short visit, although parking is in short supply.

This unique garden area is easy to get to, beautiful to walk through and provides a way for the public to see research at work. The gardens are always a treat to view. Each year there are different varieties of flowers, and the way they present them in the garden is a rainbow of fun. There are definitely better times... More

This is one of the most spectacular and very colorful displays of flowers we have ever seen. It is a breathtaking view as you realize how beautiful it is and the ideas and thoughts that go into it to. A must see for any visitors to Fort Collins and you realize what the students and staff of CSU accomplish.
