Demonstration Garden


Summit County Master Gardeners have created several beautiful Plant Select® demonstration garden plots at the Sue Cruth Memorial Garden, located at the County Commons in Frisco. Plant Select® is a cooperative program administered by Denver Botanic Gardens and Colorado State University in concert with horticulturists and nurseries throughout the Rocky Mountain region and beyond. The purpose of Plant Select® is to seek out, identify and distribute the very best plants for landscapes and gardens from the intermountain region to the high plains. 

We welcome you to come check out the garden and get ideas for your own gardening projects. The County Commons is located at 37 Peak One Blvd. (County Road 1005), Frisco.
