Best In Show: 2012 Field Trials Results

Echinacea 'Cheyenne Spirit'

The plants that came through this season’s trials still looking like winners are truly tough. With record-setting temperatures and drought conditions ranging from mild to severe throughout much of the country, new varieties were thoroughly tested.
We asked trial managers from around the country to send us their top performers, as well as the weather conditions during the trial period. Fifteen responded, and the results are shared below.

We did not receive results from any trials in the Northeast or Pacific Northwest. While not every new plant was trialed in every garden, a few cultivars made it onto more than one list of best performers.

Two coleus, Plectranthus ‘Chocolate Covered Cherry’ and P. ‘ColorBlaze Marooned’ were among these, as well as Calibrachoa ‘Superbells Lemon Slice,’ Evolvulus ‘Blue My Mind’ and Begonia ‘Whopper Red With Green Leaf’ and B. ‘Whopper Red With Bronze Leaf.’

The one perennial that made multiple lists was Echinacea ‘Cheyenne Spirit,’ which received the 2013 All-America Selection Flower Award. Several series performed well in multiple trials: angelonia Serenita, catharanthus Cora, verbena Temari, lobularia Stream, petunia Surfinia, geranium Caliente, geranium Calliope, verbena Lanai, plectranthus Under the Sea (coleus)and the petunia Potunia series.
There were many other outstanding performers, varying by region. We’ve included a summary here. For complete trial details and photos, visit GreenhouseGrower.com/November2012.

Lucas Greenhouses, Monroeville, N.J.
Lucas mainly trials vegetative varieties from Syngenta, along with a few seed-grown varieties and introductions from other companies. In 2012 Lucas tested more than 200 varieties.

All-America Selections Promotes Garden-Fresh Cooking

All-America Selections (AAS) has stepped forward with another first when promoting AAS Winners, this time in the form of cooking videos using vegetables/edibles that have performed extremely well in the AAS Trials. These days, a love of gardening is directly related to a passion for cooking. Tying the two together is a natural when marketing joys of cooking with fresh vegetables from the garden and farm market. After 82 years of conducting trials where only the best performers are declared AAS Winners, the organization now has more than 325 individual varieties that have been “Tested Nationally & Proven Locally.” It is some of these many varieties that culinary storyteller, entertainer and horticulture industry veteran Jonathan Bardzik will use in a series of five videos demonstrating cooking techniques with AAS Winning herbs and vegetables. “I am excited to partner with All-America Selections to show people across the country that AAS Winners perform […]

4 Reasons Retailers Snub National Brands

Greenhouse Grower’s lead editor, Laura Drotleff, and I got into a debate about why garden retailers, especially independent garden centers, snub marketing efforts from breeders and growers. She was very much on the breeders’ and growers’ side, expressing frustration about how limited retailers’ vision can be on the topic. I’ve reported on the garden retail side of the industry since 1998, about the same length of time Laura has reported on growers. I’ve heard a lot of retailer views on this, so allow me to share the most common reasons why retailers decline free marketing: Costs. While the marketing materials are free, and sometimes advertising, participating in these projects usually requires minimum orders. From a grower’s perspective, the minimum orders are reasonable. If garden stores promote a plant line, they need to have enough supplies to satisfy demand. From a retail perspective, if inventory reports show a plant line can […]
