The East Texas Ornamental Plant Evaluation Program consists of two locations. The North Farm field location is where bedding plant trials are conducted during the summer and winter seasons. The Demonstration Garden at the main headquarters location features award winners including Texas Superstar(R) plants and those designated as North Texas Winner's Circle(TM) plants. Also featured are perennial plant trials and woody plant trials with an emphasis on roses and palms. The annual Overton Horticulture Field Day is on the fourth Thursday in June each year.
