All-America Selections has promoted the development, production and distribution of new and better varieties of flowers and vegetables, specifically for North America, since 1948.

They have established trial grounds and test and demonstration gardens, in many areas of North America, including Canada. These trial areas exist for the purpose of testing, judging, rating and demonstrating new varieties, species, strains and kinds of plants.

The AAS awards, recommends and publicizes these new selections, according to their general or sectional adaptation, use and perfection.
