This year's display theme, "Brilliant," will utilize Proven Winners shrubs to highlight the culture, design, landscapes and gardens of Great Britain. Jim Sutton and Laura Culver, display designers from Longwood Gardens, developed the 15' by 20' design of the garden as a gift to America in Bloom.

"Britain is known for its stunning gardens, personal and public landscapes," said Culver. "In fact, Britain in Bloom is one of the models on which America in Bloom is based. America in Bloom brings communities to life by demonstrating the social and economic benefits of plants."

AIB's exhibit coordinator and board member, Delilah Onofrey, partnered with Spring Meadow Nursery , home of Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs, to supply plants to support the theme.

Plants from Proven Winners include Chardonnay Pearls® deutzia, Snow Day™ Surprise pearl bush, and Bloom-a-Thon® Pink Double azalea.

The display will also feature plants bred by Suntory® Flowers, supplied by Peace Tree Farms.
