Emerald Coast Growers is the inaugural licensee for nine new sedums from Terra Nova Nurseries, all part of Emerald Coast and Terra Nova's strategic alliance to bring the breeder's new plants to market.
"Terra Nova Nurseries' plants are the best in the business, and we're proud to share their innovative products with the market," says Cheri Markowitz, Sales Manager. "These great new sedums are just the start of this exciting venture."
The new sedum introductions include the Candy series, the Party Hardy series, 'Class Act', 'Crystal Pink', 'Hot Stuff' and 'Mr. Goodbud.'
The Candy series features Chocolate Drop (chocolaty-brown upright stems with rose-colored flowers) and Raspberry Truffle (rosy pink flowers over scalloped deep brown/purple leaves). Plants grow 12 to 14 inches and are hardy to Zones 4 to 9.
The Party Hardy series includes Beach Party (masses of starry, light rose-pink flowers against yellow-green, red-edged foliage), Birthday Party (big dark rose pink flower heads over bronze/purple foliage) and Pool Party (light pink clusters contrasting with aqua-blue-green foliage). Plants grow 10 to 24 inches and are hardy in Zones 4 to 9.
'Class Act' offers rounded masses of rose flowers on dense upright mounds of muted green leaves. Winner of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, it grows 16 inches high and is hardy to Zones 4 to 9.
