“This year we have been working unbelievably hard to bring as many new varieties into our range as possible and we are delighted to say that 2019 is shaping up to be a bumper year! In fact, this could well be the best introduction list we have ever announced! We’ll be adding nearly 90 fantastic new varieties into our already extensive range, to ensure that everybody can find their perfect plant.
So, what have we added? Well, some of the highlights include a brand new Nemesia, from the Proven Winners stable – ‘Pink Lemonade’. This certainly doesn’t let the side down with fantastic colour and scent. Heucheras also seem to be maintaining their popularity, and we insist on introducing only the very best new ones. So, this year will see the introduction of the eye catching ‘Forever Red’ – a vibrant beauty we simply could not ignore! Also look out for another Proven Winner perennial – Heuchera ‘Wild Rose’, a stunning blackberry coloured beauty that is sure to impress.
Those who know us well, will know that in addition to cutting edge new breeding lines, we often introduce old favourites and less well-known varieties from the past. Plectranthus ‘Mona Lavender’ comes into this category…. Wonderful sky blue speckled flowers on green foliage with wonderful wine-coloured undersides – no wonder it earned the garden merit RHS award!
Look out for additions to our Salvia range, some special finds from the wilds of South America, such as a great cerise pink ‘San Carlos Festival’, but also some brand new breeding from our Proven Winner friends…. Look out for the beginnings of the Salvia Rockin’ series including Rockin’ ‘Deep Purple’ and Rockin’ ‘Fuchsia’. These are more grower friendly alternatives to the traditionally taller guaranitica forms. Hybridised with splendens and some other “magic ingredients” to make a more “stocky” premium, long-lived annual.
We continue to promote the Proven Winners brand in the UK with our Proven Winner branded plants, POS materials and marketing activities such as the website -www.provenwinners.eu – We will be more than happy to talk you through those varieties on the stand also. Please come and see us on Stand C7!”
