Hillside Garden Center will be hosting a flower fashion event tomorrow.

Some new trendy plants will be featured on a red carpet, along with hands on demonstrations, local artists and sales.

This morning, Hillside and Proven Winners laid out some of the brands new plants and shrubs. They include the Bloomerang Lilac, which blooms twice in the year, the Tuff Stuff Mountain Hydrangea, a Goji Berry shrub and the Castlespire Blue Holly.

Before the plants hit the market, they are thoroughly tested.

"Any plant that is released on the market is tested for 5 to 7 years in ground all over the country at different testing sites to test its hardiness, consistency and reliability," said Heidi Mortensen of Proven Winners.

The flower fashion event goes from 10 until 4 p.m. tomorrow, rain or shine, at Hillside Garden Center at 1449 Front St. in the Town of Chenango.

Proven Winners plants will be 15 percent off.
