Diascia ‘Darla Deep Salmon’ and ‘Darla White’ by Syngenta Flowers
Two new colors are available in this Goldfisch diascia, which has a dense, upright plant and extra large, showy blooms that cover the entire plant with color. Darla has shown excellent heat tolerance and garden performance in university trials.

Diascia Diva Series by Hort Couture
New in the series is ‘Raspberry,’ which joins ‘Hot Coral,’ ‘Red’ and ‘Pink.’ These varieties have a compact habit, are floriferous and heat tolerant.

Diascia Genta–7 New Colors by Danziger “Dan” Flower Farm
With large flowers and a compact growth habit, Genta has a high tolerance to diseases. It recovers quickly after rainy weather and is great in hanging baskets and combo planters. New colors are Coral Reef, Bold Pink, Classic White, Raspberry, Mandarine, Salmon Stream and Giant Pink.

Diascia Juliet by Ball FloraPlant
This low-energy, grower friendly series is easy to produce and ship. Plants are tidy and won’t tangle on the bench. No PGRs are needed. A 2 for 1 series: pay for one unrooted cutting, get two to plant. Colors are Light Pink, Orange, Pink With Eye, Red and White.

Diascia ‘Picadilly Dark Salmon’ (pictured) and ‘Picadilly Pink’ by Selecta First Class
Better color and summer performance than their originals, Dark Salmon and Pink join the series with large flowers on short stems, great for high-density, low-energy programs.

Diascia Romeo by Ball FloraPlant
Romeo is a vigorous and trailing variety, perfect for hanging baskets. The series includes six colors: Bright Pink, Orange, Pink, Red, Salmon and White. Romeo needs low energy inputs, requires no PGRs if grown cool and extends the season.

Dipladenia Bell series by Isaacson Flowers/Agrexco
An experimental variety, the Bell dipladenia series features Red, Dark Red, Pink and Light Pink flowers. The twining sprawling shrub and climber blooms in trumpet-shaped flowers in full sun to partial shade. For containers, hanging baskets, window boxes and landscapes.

Doronicum ‘Leonardo Compact’ by Euro American
Large, bright-yellow daisy-like flowers bloom early in the season, and compact, green foliage looks good all season long. This variety performs in zones 4 to 7 and grows to 10 to 14 inches.

Dyckia ‘Burgundy Ice’ by Euro American
This dyckia has smooth, deep-burgundy leaves with spiky white margins. The plant’s small rosettes form dense, eye-catching clumps. This variety works well in containers and rock gardens.

Echinacea PowWow Series by PanAmerican Seed
With more flowers on every plant than any other seed echinacea, PowWow is shorter than the competition, making it easier to grow and ship. Drought-tolerant, easy-to-care-for plants stay tidy at retail. Colors are White and Wild Berry.

Erysimum ‘Fragrant Star’ by Skagit Gardens
‘Fragrant Star’ has lightly scented yellow flowers that top yellow and green variegated foliage. It has a bushy, compact and long-blooming habit.

Erysimum Glow by Plug Connection
Glow is a new series of hybrid perennial wallflowers with a ground-hugging, tight plant habit, and myriads of small, honey-scented flowers in a range of sunny citrus colors. Tiny foliage and very compact, these varieties provide masses of reliable color for early-season sales and make excellent rock garden or container specimens.

Erysimum Poem by Plug Connection
This is a new series of hybrid perennial wallflowers with a profusion of medium-sized, sweetly-scented flowers in a range of wonderful pastel colors. Poem erysimum flower non-stop from late spring through early summer. Bushy in habit, frost-tolerant and tough, these varieties provide masses of reliable color for early-season sales.

Erysimum Rysi by Plug Connection
This is a new series of hybrid perennial wallflowers with a tight plant habit and medium-sized, sweetly-scented flowers. Flowers appear in a broad range of bright, sunny colors, flowering non-stop from late winter through to early summer.

Winter erysimum by Plug Connection
Winter is a new series of hybrid perennial wallflowers with large, sweetly-scented flowers in a broad range of luscious colors, flowering non-stop from late winter through to early summer. Bushy in habit, frost-tolerant and tough, these varieties provide masses of reliable color for early-season sales.

Eschscholzia ‘Cream Swirl’ by Thompson & Morgan
‘Cream Swirl’ offers double cream-colored flowers above a fine, blue-green feathery foliage. 10-inch plants are suitable for containers or beds. ‘Cream Swirl’ is a Fleuroselect Novelty Award Winner.

AmericanHort Update on Genetically Engineered Petunias

AmericanHort is actively assisting affected plant breeders, distributors, growers, and retailers as the genetically modified petunia regulatory response continues. Since the last update, there have been several changes to the list of petunias confirmed or suspected of being genetically engineered and therefore unauthorized to be imported or sold. Also, the list of recognized laboratories for petunia variety confirmation testing has expanded. Most importantly, petunia varieties on the USDA-APHIS Biotechnology Regulatory Services (BRS) list require an APHIS Form 2000 for importation. APHIS also began requiring that any Petunia spp. Shipments, not including regulated GE varieties, must be accompanied by a list of variety names. This resulted in some inspection delays at the USDA-APHIS plant inspection station in Atlanta over the past two weeks. In response, AmericanHort has negotiated a more flexible approach with APHIS, and new guidance has just been posted for importing Petunia plants, cuttings, or seed. The new guidance allows […]

On May 2, 2017, USDA-APHIS was informed that an orange petunia variety was potentially genetically engineered and had been imported and moved interstate without required authorization by APHIS. This led to testing of numerous petunia varieties, which confirmed this particular variety and several others are genetically engineered, and meet the regulatory definition of a regulated article under APHIS regulations. APHIS continues to work with the industry to ensure unauthorized GE petunias are not distributed in the United States.
