July 10, 2013, Downers Grove, IL — All-America Selections (AAS) has announced the first of the AAS Winners for the 2014 gardening season.

The bedding plant ‘Sparkle White’ gaura and vegetable ‘Mascotte’ bean have been crowned winners after being trailed next to two similar varieties that are currently on the market.
The AAS judges grew each entry and the comparisons then did a side-by-side analysis of growth habit, taste, disease resistance and more to determine if these varieties were truly better than those already available to home gardeners. Only those flower entries with superior garden performance or the vegetables with superior taste and garden performance are given the AAS stamp of approval.
Both varieties are now available for immediate sale to brokers and growers. Consumers will find this seed for sale in the coming months as supply becomes available with catalog companies, in seed packets, from mail order companies and various websites.

AAS Winners will also be available as young plants in lawn and garden retail stores next spring, in time for the 2014 gardening season.
