Monrovia Unveils 7 New Plant Varieties For 2015, Plus A Sneak Peek

Monrovia has announced some of its new and improved plants for 2015. The company seeks out plants that are more pest and disease resistant, drought resistant or that have a different color, flower or fruit.

“The habit is another characteristic we seek to improve,” says Nicholas Staddon, new plant specialist and Monrovia spokesperson. “Many people are seeking dwarf and compact varieties of their favorite plants, so they can grow them in a smaller garden or container. Low-maintenance is in big demand, so those plants that don’t require much pruning or dead-heading are hugely popular.”

Here are some of Monrovia’s new varieties for 2015 (more to be announced soon):
