Geranium (Interspecific) Fusion Flame by Ecke/Oglevee

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Showcase Extreme Rose’ by Ball FloraPlant
‘Showcase Extreme Rose’ is a unique color with an eye-catching freckle. Showcase is a great quick-turn crop for pot-tight, late-season summer production.

Geranium (Zonal) ‘Tango White’ by Syngenta Flowers
Large, brightly colored flowers contrast nicely with dark green foliage in this Goldfisch geranium series, now with 17 colors. Medium vigor plants with sturdy root systems are well-behaved in the greenhouse and perform well in the garden.

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.
