This page is dedicated to our new additions and changes to our 2020 spring plant production.

This page is a current work in progress.

Updated – Jan. 24, 2020

New to our Annuals:

J6 (606) & 1801 Annuals:

IMPATIENS – Imara

Take back your shade with Imara Impatiens! Imara is bred to have high resistance to downy mildew.

Imara has a good variety of colors in the series. We will be growing the colors listed in both J6 and 1801 sizes.

Orange Pink, Purple, Red, Red Star, Rose, Salmon Shades, White and Mix.

Imara has also out performed other series in trials – check out their trial garden video below

Torenia – Kauai

Due to the popularity of shade plants and to the popularity of Torenia especially as an alternative to impatiens in areas that are dealing with downy mildew, we have increased our Torenia production.

In our J6 we have added Kauai Rose and Kauai White.

In our #4 sq/1801s we have added Kauai Blue and Kauai Mix.

VINCA – Sunstorm Mix

In 2019 we added Sunstorm Purple Vinca to our production and it proved to be popular due to it’s unique color. So to continue with that uniqueness, we have added Sunstorm Mix Vinca for 2020 in both our J6 and 1801.

Sunstorm Mix is a great mix of vinca that includes Sunstorm Purple for something different to set you apart.

ZINNIA Zesty series

Zesty Zinnias are a new series from PanAmerican seed that feature fully double blooms. Zestys have excellecent garden perfomance and vigor.

Pollinators will be attracted to Zesty Zinnias’ bright colors.

Annual 306 Easy Wave Petunias

We have added the new Easy Wave Lavender Sky Blue Petunia to our 306 Annual flats (3 large 6-packs per flat). The size of each plant is comparable to the 1801.

The advantage to these size flats is that homeowners and landscapers can pay less per plant compared to a #6 Wave Petunia and there is less leftover items (tags, etc.) to clean up. Landscapers can save both time and money with less to clean up.

#4.5 Premium Annuals

There are not too many changes to our #4.5 Premium Annuals this year.

Angelonia Serenita Rose

The new Serenita Rose Angelonia replaces Serenita Lavender in our production. Serenita Rose’s color is much bolder and a better complimenting color the Serenita Purple and Serenita White that we grow.

These care-free Angelonias promise continuous, long-lasting
color in mass plantings and mixed containers, and perform well under a wide range of conditions.

Anglonias

For something completely new this year, we added Angelonias into our #6 Premium Annual category. These are grown in our #6 pots due to being more vigorous plants.

Angelmist Spreading Purple – it’s spreading habit makes it great for borders and hanging baskets. Angelmist is the angelonia we use in our Summer Bouquet and Summer Fest #12 Mix Masters Baskets

Archangel Cherry Red – has the largest booms of any series and Cherry Red is the reddest angelonia available.

1G Premium Annuals

Begonia Tophat

Tophat Begonias have the largest blooms in the class of XL landscape begonias that include BIG® and Megawatt™ begonias. They also flower earlier.

Tophats have a rounded, mounding habit. Flowers cover the canopy at finish to make an outstanding gallon crop. Tophat performs in the sun or shade and is great for in-ground or large containers growing to about 16 to 20 inches tall. All the colors match well together to make excellent tri-color combinations.

SunPatien® Compact Orchid Blush

Compact Orchid Blush is new for 2020 and a great addition to the popular SunPatiens®
