Impatiens Impreza Series by PanAmerican Seed
Breeding breakthrough Impreza offers a range of colors plus unique patterns. Reduced apical dominance and decreased internode length combine for easy-to-manage plants that provide good soil coverage with less upward stretch, and potentially need fewer PGRs. All 8 colors flower earlier and finish in a tight, 5- to 7-day window for efficient shipping. Garden fill is excellent and plants stay full and good-looking all season. Colors are Blue Pearl, Cherry Splash, Pink Splash, Red, Rose, Salmon, Violet, White and 7 mixes.

With double flowers in a range of colors, Musica is now available in 12 new colors: Princess Pink, Pink Bride, Pure White, Rosy Red, Pink Silk, Orange Touch, Elegant Red, Magenta, Fine Purple (pictured), Orange Energy, Bicolor Salmon and Bicolor Cherry.

Impatiens SunPatiens from Ecke
Bred by Sakata, SunPatiens love the heat and provide three seasons of solid performance and color. New colors include Vigorous Pink and Spreading Corona.

Impatiens Super Elfin in seven colors by PanAmerican Seed
Super Elfin XP varieties deliver a tight, 5 to 7-day flowering window across all colors–core and novelty–so all plants ship at the same time to meet market dates. XP also assures exceptionally uniform habit and plant vigor, consistency of early flowering, and bigger blooms than the competition. The broad colour range lets you mix and match any Super Elfin XP variety to achieve the most uniform impatiens crop. Colors are Cherry Splash XP, Lilac XP, Red Starburst XP, Rose Starburst XP, Violet XP Improved, Violet Starburst XP and Starburst Mix XP

Ipomoeas ‘Chihuahua’ by Hort Couture

Fourteen years ago, Greenhouse Grower saw an opportunity to bring next-day coverage of California Pack Trials (now California Spring Trials or CAST) to your inbox. The objective was to be your eyes and ears on location, to report the debut of the newest varieties and marketing programs, and report major breeder announcements, especially for those not attending. We continued to develop new story-telling tools with video capabilities, slideshows, and more. And once social media took hold, everyone attending CAST became reporters of their favorite varieties and displays at trials. So we’re left with the question — how should we continue to evolve our coverage, to bring the most value for you? It’s easy to fall into a certain pattern, to stick with what works — or seems to work. And just because you’re working really hard at something that you’ve had success with in the past, it doesn’t mean it’s […]
