<- Verbena To VincaVarieties 2011 Home         

Corina violas by Hem Genetics
‘Violet with Yellow Face’ and ‘Marina’ are new to the Corina series, which is now up to seven colors. These violas have uniform plant habits and can be used for different types of packs and pot sizes. Plants are strong branching and fill pots quickly. They have a mounding habit and are covered with multiple flowers.
Viola Endurio Lavender and Sky Blue Martien by Syngenta Flowers
Endurio, a spreading viola from Goldsmith Seeds, has a mounding, spreading habit that is good for baskets, color bowls and landscapes. Well branched and free flowering, it has good bloom coverage over the entire plant. ‘Sky Blue Martien’ is a 2010 AAS Cool Season Winner.
Viola ‘Fire Shades’ by Thompson & Morgan
‘Fire Shades’ is a scented mix of cheery red, pink and yellow flowers. Six-inch plants are suitable for containers.

Viola Floral Power series by American Takii
2010 new colors are Gold Purple Wing, Yellow Blotch Red Wing and Lilac Rose White Centre. The Floral Power series is a mound-type viola that produces round-shaped, thick petals.
Viola ‘Penny Primrose Picotee’ by Syngenta Flowers
Penny is extremely free flowering in both fall and spring seasons. This Goldsmith Seeds variety requires very little PGR. Plants have robust root systems and large, flat flowers form a carpet of color.  
Viola Sorbet Series–24 New Colors by PanAmerican Seed
Sorbet XP seed quality delivers the most uniform plant habit and tightest bloom window. Plants cover the soil at flowering, with more blooms on every plant and less stretching. Fewer PGRs are needed, holdability is superior and shrink is cut way back. Early-blooming Sorbet remains compact in both heat and cold, making it a standout performer in spring and fall.
 
Zinnia Double Zahara Series by PanAmerican Seed
2010 All-America Selections award winners, Fire also brought home the Fleuroselect Gold Medal, while Cherry received a Fleruoselect Novelty Mark. The only true double zinnia series on the market, Double Zahara boasts all the same exceptional traits as its single Zahara couterparts: bigger flowers than the competition for more color show, outstanding disease tolerance, low water needs and superior all-season performance in beds and planters. Colors are Cherry, Fire and Duo Mix.
Zinnia ‘Pinca’ by Thompson & Morgan
‘Pinca’ offers large, fully double, bright pink cactus flowers. The plant grows to 36 inches high. It is free flowering and heat tolerant and can be used for cut flowers.

Zinnia ‘Senora’ by Thompson & Morgan
