California Spring Trials: New Blooming Potted Plants Coming For 2017 [Photo Gallery]

Blooming potted plants are the gift that keeps on giving for consumers, and the growing opportunities in the gift plant market are opening up new possibilities for growers and retailers. Flower breeders exhibiting at the 2016 California Spring Trials (CAST) have several new blooming beauties of the potted plant variety to show off for the 2017 spring season. Before you head to California in a few weeks, take a look at the slideshow to get a preview. Which ones will you incorporate into production for 2017?

 

 

If you missed our annuals slideshows, don’t worry — you can check them out here. Because so many annuals are revealed at CAST, we had to build two slideshows — one for the Northern Region and one for the Central Region. Also, check out new perennials that will debut at the 2016 CAST. In the coming weeks, you can also see new woody ornamentals and edibles. Also, look for our March issue to see these varieties, up close and personal, in Greenhouse Grower magazine.
