Terra Nova Nurseries Introduces New Heuchera And Begonia Series

Begonia 'Garden Angel Plum'

Terra Nova Nurseries announced two new 2013 Sneak Peek introductions are now available to growers: Heuchera ‘Glitter’ and a begonia series called Begonia Garden Angels. These new introductions are among many new cultivars the company will be introducing to the marketplace this year.

Heuchera ‘Glitter’ has mirror-bright silver foliage and contrasting black veins. This variety produces bouquet-type, exotic fuchsia-pink flowers during the summer months. Additionally, Heuchera ‘Glitter’ has an ultra-neat, clean habit, making it easy to grow and maintain. For optimal performance, ‘Glitter’ requires sun to shade exposure and well-drained, organic soil. This variety has an average size of 11 inches wide, 10 inches high and a flower height of 15 inches. It is best for USDA Zones 4 to 9.

Terra Nova Nurseries’ new Begonia Garden Angels series includes three varieties: Begonia ‘Garden Angel Blush,’ Begonia ‘Garden Angel Plum’ and Begonia ‘Garden Angel Silver.’ As a whole, the series is uniquely bred to withstand cold weather, is hardy in zone 7 and is easy-to-grow. Each of the varieties in the series has flashy metallic leaves, giving the plants an exotic appearance.

Begonia ‘Garden Angel Blush’ produces pewter-silver palmate leaves with coal-black veins and a warm, rich violet blush, while Begonia ‘Garden Angel Silver’ has shiny silver, maple-like leaves with mint-green veins. Begonia ‘Garden Angel Plum’ has plum-red-violet foliage and is the largest of the three Garden Angels.

To place an order, growers can contact their Terra Nova Nurseries representatives or email the sales team at sales@terranovanurseries.com. For more information about these new varieties, and other new introductions from Terra Nova Nurseries, visit TerraNovaNurseries.com.

Greenhouse Grower’s 2015 Operation Of The Year Sheridan Nurseries Raises The Bar

Ontario-based Sheridan Nurseries has long been an innovator in the Canadian market, but during the economic downturn, CEO Karl Stensson says the company decided to take things a step further. “We have survived the Great Depression, two World Wars and many other downturns in the economy,” he says. “During this last recession, our staff set out at being the best at what we do.” The company’s efforts have paid off. Sheridan Nurseries was named Operation of the Year at Greenhouse Grower’s Evening of Excellence, held July 13, at Cultivate’15 in Columbus, Ohio. The company was also awarded for Excellence In Perennials Production, based on its reputation for plant quality and the activities the nursery has led and been a part of, both within its company and in the industry at large. “We are elated and proud of our staff accomplishments,” says CEO Karl Stensson. “Over the last five years, we […]

Under Siege? Not Really, Just Go For A Walk

I have no trouble with people buying chocolates or wine instead of flowers to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays or peoples’ lives. We should all have choices. However, the other night I felt like I was entering the Republican caucus. I was minding my own business by the television set and became more than a little upset. A website called insteadofflowers.com came on the screen. It provided serene music and wholesome images of busy women doing busy things. It turns out that such busy women enjoy a small token of appreciation, but apparently their enjoyment, according to the voice-over, does not include flowers. This website delivers meals to the house, anything from beef brisket to beef bourguignon. It is a fine website with a good idea. But why pick on us? Why not use “insteadofbaloneysandwiches.com” or “insteadofgrilledcheeseandsoup.com,” “insteadofburgerdoodle.com,” or a dozen other things. When did flowers get to be the whipping boy? […]
