The ASCFG National Cut Flower Trials are recognized as the only national cut flower evaluations in the United States. Growers in all zones test new annual, perennial, bulb, and woody cut flower varieties for hardiness, yield, stem length, and marketability. Breeders and suppliers rely on these Trials as an integral part of their cultivar development and evaluation process. Data are compiled by Dr. John Dole at North Carolina State University, where postharvest testing is also done. Find complete trial information at the NCSU site.
The results of each year’s Trials are published in the Winter issue of The Cut Flower Quarterly. Back issues of the Quarterly are posted here in Members Only.
