‘White’ is the latest addition to the Carpet series. It has small, clear white flowers, fine leaves and a trailing habit. It is suited for covering ground or hanging baskets.
Verbena Costa del Sol series by Ecke
Bred by Gamia Plant Breeding, Costa del Sol creates a full series of early-flowering, mildew-tolerant verbena in a mounding habit. It works equally well in pots and baskets. Colors are Magenta, Pink and White.
Verbena Donalena Blue Soul, Bordeaux Soul, Pink Soul and Duo Glossy Red by Danziger “Dan” Flower Farm
A floriferous plant contrasting between flowers and foliage, Donalena has a long blooming season with a rapid and easy growth habit. Broad, dark-leafed foliage contrasts with large clusters of flowers.
Verbena Donalena Twinkle Red and Purple by Danziger “Dan” Flower Farm
With flowers comprised of random patterns of two petal colors, Donalena Twinkle has broad, dark green foliage that spreads vigorously and is highly branched. For hanging baskets and groundcover.
Verbena Empress Dark Red Queen, Soft Pink and Violet Blue by Dummen USA
The Empress series features big flowers in a semi-upright habit. All varieties are uniform in plant habit with a broad leaf pattern to protect against mildew and water stress.
Espadrille verbenas by Hort Couture
‘Burgundy’ is new in the Espadrille series, which offers large flowers, mildew tolerance and a compact habit.
Verbena Fuego Red White Eye by Selecta First Class
A unique bicolor verbena, Fuego Red White Eye adds to the medium-to-high-vigor series. Trailing habit makes Fuego a good choice for easy basket production.
Verbena ‘Lanai Strawberry and Cream’ by Syngenta Flowers
This Goldfisch verbena series is now available in 17 colors and is early to bloom with large, striking flowers. Lanai is a fast rooter and offers exceptional powdery mildew resistance.
Verbena Lascar Brilliant White and Magenta by Selecta First Class
The Lascar series delivers medium, easy-to-control vigor, full-centered blooms and excellent branching. Garden performance is great, even through heat. Magenta’s eye-catching flowers have a darker magenta center with white eye.
Verbena Lascar Compact Dark Red and Compact Pink by Selecta First Class
This subseries produces lower vigor, a compact habit and excellent branching. Two new colors offer the same early-flowering, full-centered flowers, summer-long shows and consumer appeal.
Verbena Magelana in colors Peach, Plum Frost and Purple with Eye by Syngenta Flowers
Flowers cover the entire plant in this Goldfisch verbena series. Plants have an attractive, fine-leaf foliage and a more compact, low-growing habit.  
Verbena ‘Roccoco Burgundy’ by Westhoff

Verbena ‘Ron Deal’ by GroLink
‘Ron Deal’ features unique color, heat resistance and flowers that nearly last all year.
Verbena ‘Superbena Royale Chambray’ by Proven Winners
‘Royale Chambray’ has sweetly fragrant, lavender-colored flowers. It is good for smaller pot production but performs well for consumers, too. The variety grows 6 to 10 inches tall with a 12-to-24-inch spread, and it prefers full sun to part shade.
Verbena ‘Temari Patio Red Improved’ by Suntory
‘Patio Red Improved’ is a new color introduction for the Temari series. The variety has strong central branching and quickly forms tall mounds of color. This improvement to the series also offers more flowering and more powdery mildew resistance. 
Verbena Vegas Plus by Florensis and Oro Farms
Vegas Plus varieties have broad leaves with attractive dark green foliage. Vegas Plus is early to flower and maintains a nice full plant center in the garden. New through Oro Farms this year are Peach, Red, Rose with Eye and White.
Verbena Veralena Cosmic Blue, Wedding White, Rouge and Elegant Violet by Danziger “Dan” Flower Farm
Joining Elegant White, these four new colors join the Veralena series with large flowers and narrow, lacy green foliage. It performs well in hanging baskets and as a groundcover.
Vinca Mediterranean Cherry Red Halo XP, Rose Halo XP and Halo Mix XP by PanAmerican Seed
The only full series of vinca offering a true red and a pure white, Mediterranean XP varieties fill in fast with terrific coverage. XP genetics deliver a tight, 5-to-7-day flowering window, significantly better spreading habit, larger flowers and improved germination. It has low water needs in sunny, hot and dry conditions.
Vinca Pacifica Orange XP, Bold Mix XP, Mystic Mix XP and Salsa Mix XP by PanAmerican Seed
The earliest, largest-flowered and most vigorous O.P. vinca comes with XP seed quality. Pacifica XP varieties deliver a tight, 5-to-7-day flowering window and uniform, upright habit across all colors. Outstanding in hot, dry and sunny conditions.
Vinca SunStorm in colors Deep Orchid and Purple by Syngenta Flowers
This Goldsmith Seeds variety is a good choice for lower pricepoint packs and small pots. Genetically compact plants need little-to-no PGRs. SunStorm loves heat, and its early and free-flowering plants finish quickly.
Vinca Titan Bubble Gum Mix, Clear Mix, Cotton Candy Mix, Red and White Mix, Summer Breeze Mix by PanAmerican Seed
Titan is up to two weeks faster to flower than open-pollinated varieties, with superior branching and the big flowers. Titan combines faster and earlier flowering with better vigor than Pacifica and Cooler. Titan is a vigorous grower even in cooler climates and a good low-water variety in hot, dry conditions.

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.
