Ball Horticultural

  The ‘Taishan’ marigold delivers excellent, season-long landscape performance with high-impact, drive-by color. Exceptional branching provides full, lush plants that perform better and longer. No soft centers, means extended season performance. This marigold comes in a gold-orange-yellow mixture and can reach 12 inches in height and 10 inches in width.
  All-new ‘Zahara’ zinnia is a disease-tolerant and heat-loving series that has 20 percent larger flowers in stronger colors than the market leaders. This variety includes a trio of “firsts” for a zinnia of this type: yellow, scarlet and a well-balanced mix. The ‘Zahara’ can grow up to 18 inches and spread to the same length.

 
The Super Spun petunia series comes in four colors: Burgundy, Red, Silver Vein and Yellow. As low-maintenance petunias, they require less water than traditional petunia baskets. This easy-flowering series has a tight and compact, ball-shaped habit with large, showy flowers that will give an excellent performance throughout the season. The Super Spuns reach 6 to 8 inches tall and 8 to 10 inches wide.
  With traditional, large flowers in unique colors (Antique Shades, Blue Morn and Lime Bi-color) stand out in the Sophistica petunia collection. Reaching a height of 10 to 15 inches and spread of 10 to 12 inches, the unique lime-toned colors may attract new buyers and may create a higher price point.
  The Breathless euphorbia series is all-new and includes the only red-flushed leaf form plus a better-branched white than the competition. Heat-tolerant, fine-textured varieties fill in fast and display a showy mass of self-cleaning flowers all season long. Durable, low maintenance and long lasting in containers and in-ground plantings, this euphorbia can reach a height of 12 inches and a width of 24 inches.
 

Bodger Botanicals

  ‘Coco Salmon/White’ Begonia semperflorens is robust in habit, flower power, and heat tolerance. ‘Coco Salmon/White’ will grace any garden or combination with flair. Bicolored, salmon and white, fully double flowers are brazenly featured against chocolate brown foliage. Plants grow to a height of 10 to 14 inches and 10 to 12 inches wide. Also new for 2009 is ‘Coco White’ and ‘Coco Rose.’
  Acrobat Antirrhinums are a brand new series from Bodger Botanicals. A pendulous habit makes them ideal in baskets and combinations. Unlike many snapdragons, the Acrobats are more heat tolerant and will continue to flower for much of the summer in all but the hottest of climates. Choose from Orchid, Cherry-Red, and Yellow. With a garden height of 4 to 6 inches and spread of 8 to 12 inches, this series comes in orchid, cherry-red, and yellow.
  Continuing Sweet Caroline’s stronghold on the ipomoea market is ‘Feather Light Green.’ Joined by ‘Feather Purple’ (also new), both exhibit finely dissected leaves and the same, wonderful habit the Sweet Carolines are known for. Excellent for use in combinations where fine texture is desired. Like the rest of the Sweet Carolines, the Feathers are very heat tolerant and can reach 8 inches in height and spread to 8 inches.
 

Goldsmith

 

The petite and powerful Picobella Red Milliflora petunia does not require a special growing regimen nor PGRs. These vigorous growers are perfect for small tabletop containers.

  Grower, landscaper and university trials confirm that Cora Cascade trailing vinca is a survivor that thrives in heat and humidity and has a patented resistance to aerial phytophthora. With its super large flowers and thick, glossy foliage, this vinca is perfect for hanging baskets and large containers. Cora Cascades are available in Cherry, Lilac, Magenta, Peach Blush and Polka Dot.
  And there are multiple blooms! Ten to 15 open blooms are not unusual for the ‘Big Kiss Yellow Flame’ gazania. ‘Big Kiss Yellow Flame’ loves heat and adapts to water stress. It is a bushy plant that’s an excellent filler in mixed containers.
 

Benary

  Reaching a height of 20 inches, rudbeckia hirta ‘Denver Daisy’ is perfect for one-gallon production, or for large landscape plantings. Flower power is no understatement for this beauty as large masses of golden flowers adorned with rusty red rings cover the ‘Denver Daisy’ from late spring until first frost.
  Begonia tuberhybrida ‘Illumination Peaches ‘n Cream’ is the newest addition to the Illumination series. ‘Illumination Peaches ‘n Cream’ has an abundance of large double flowers in a soft spectrum of peaches ‘n cream color shades, creating a spectacular display in hanging baskets and large containers that will brighten shady locations.
  Gomphrena globosa Las Vegas series reaches 16 to 20 inches tall. The Las Vegas series is perfect for 4.5 inch pot production. Three vibrant colors: Pink, Purple and White offer a bright mix for any landscape setting. Quick crop times (9 to 11 weeks) and versatility in the landscape make this series a sure winner. Heat and drought tolerant, the Las Vegas series thrives in hot, dry locations throughout the country.
 

Syngenta Flowers

  ‘Bandito’ lantana is a new, naturally compact lantana series that requires no PGRs for dense mounding, and is ideally suited for the southern U.S. market. With an exceptionally large flower size and a continuous flowering habit, you can look forward to vivid colors throughout the summer. ‘Bandito’ is available in red, rose and orange sunrise.
  Picnic mini petunia is an exciting new series from Syngenta Flowers that offers a continuous supply of 1-inch blooms in Amethyst, Red, Rose and White. This series is very grower friendly with early blooms and is ideal in the landscape or in premium baskets.
  Lanai verbena’s early flowering, semi-vigorous plant habit looks great in combination with other varieties or as a standalone. This plant is well-branched with impressive color coverage and great heat tolerance. In two new colors, Lanai welcomes the Blue Denim and Bright Eye colors to its must-have collection of mildew resistant varieties.
 

Grolink

   Coleus ‘Pink Ruffles’is a medium sized, 15- to 18-inch variety that is sturdy and durable. Mildew resistant, this plant grows well in the full sun or shade. Its leaves have jagged edges with pink color on the inside and white/tan on the outside. ‘Pink Ruffles’ grows well in the landscape or in all sorts of combos, offering a unique texture. ‘Red Ruffles’ and ‘Yellow Ruffles’ are also available.
  Euphorbia ‘Hip Hop’ has a full, mounding habit and is also heat and drought tolerant. It has nice green foliage and non-stop clouds of white flowers. This is an excellent annual for the landscape or combo pot in the spring or mixed with your favorite poinsettia variety for Christmas sales.
  The texture of Helichrysum ‘Silver Star’ along with its mounding and trailing habit makes it ideal for landscape borders and combos. This silver-colored foliage plant grows best in sun or part shade and is a true performer year round.
  Graptophyllum ‘Roseli’ is hardy in Zones 10 and 11. Over time, this evergreen plant will grow 3 to 4 inches tall. In light and darker greens with shades of gray, its leaves are oval shaped and 5 to 7 inches long. The flowers are trumpet shaped and a unique crimson color. It grows in full sun and makes an excellent focal point in any combo.
