MANSFIELD, OH - We travel down to Kingwood Center Gardens for this week's Plant Talk!

Today we take a look at Kingwood Center's trail plots.  The ten trail plots are used for testing out new plants, such as teddy bear sunflowers and tropical white morning glories.

Kingwood Center Gardens were built in 1926 by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kelly King. The 47-acre public garden saw its grand opening in 1953, one year after Mr. King's death. 

Most of the estate after Mr. King's death was left to a private foundation that is still operating the gardens today. 

Kingwood Center Gardens is located at 50 North Trimble Road, Mansfield, Ohio.
