For 20 years, Greenhouse Grower has presented its Medal of Excellence awards to recognize the most significant innovations in flower breeding and marketing.
The previously announced winners include Benary for Industry Achievement and Hermann Engelmann Greenhouses for Marketing.
The Industry’s Choice award, chosen by our well-rounded panel of experts, went to Ptilotus ‘Joey,’ a brand new genus from Australia bred by Benary.
Rudbeckia ‘Tiger Eye Gold,’ the first F1 hybrid in this genus, won our Reader’s Choice award. This breakthrough plant was bred by Goldsmith Seeds.
And last, but not least, is our traditonal Editor’s Choice award, which was presented to PlantHaven for introducing the University of Hawaii’s Royal Hawaiian colocasia collection.
Congratulations to all of this year’s winners and nominees! This year’s program was sponsored by Landmark Plastics and Lambert Peat Moss.
