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.

California Spring Trials 2016 visitors to Syngenta Flowers found the breeder company and its employees happy and excited for the future, in the wake of the announcement of its acquisition by ChemChina. Now Syngenta Flowers is ready to move forward with its breeding efforts in geraniums, pentas, and other crops, and it is opening its perennials offerings to the whole supply chain for a better chance to get those plants to retail.     Syngenta Wants To Revolutionize Geranium Breeding The big news in this year’s trial, says Karl Trellinger, Technical Services Representative at Syngenta, is the change in Syngenta’s breeding efforts in geraniums and pentas. The Calliope geranium series, long considered a premium line in the market, is getting a makeover. Growers have told the breeder that they love the colors available in the Calliope series, but the plants are just too vigorous for smaller containers and combinations. As […]

Golden State Bulb Company Shows Off New Concepts In Cal…

There’s no question that Golden State Bulb Company’s specialty is in breeding virtually any color of Calla Lily, available in about any habit — cut flower, bouquet pot, upright pot type — the list goes on. But now, the bulb specialist is focusing on making calla lilies more accessible to the masses, for use in combination planters and the landscape, with calla six-packs. Calla breeder Peter Beckman showed us the shrunken-down version of these beauties, and they’re certainly perfect for patio pots, planting along paths or at the front of the garden, or en masse for an elegant statement. This presentation makes it easy for consumers to pick up and use callas, without the intimidation they might feel from a bulb crop, says Dr. Allan Armitage.   They’re also versatile for growers to plant in early to mid-February to add to finished containers in the spring, or to sell in […]
