Webinar: Top Performing Annuals With Allan Armitage

Webinar: Top Performing Annuals With Allan Armitage

Are the varieties you are growing and selling true performers? Find out and maximize your spring offerings by registering for a free webinar hosted by Greenhouse Grower.

In the plant world, the key to repeat business is consumer success. That means plants that are easy to care for and will look great all summer. Greenhouse Grower’s resident varieties guru Dr. Allan Armitage of the University of Georgia (UGA) will present the top performing annuals based on responses from hundreds of visitors to UGA’s trial gardens in 2009.

UGA’s trial gardens have become the litmus test for plants that can withstand heat and humidity. Armitage will talk about annuals that have looked good for extended periods of time and award winners from the Trial gardens at UGA. As Armitage says, if the plant will perform well in Georgia, it will perform most anywhere.

The Greenhouse Grower team saw loads of memorable plants during day four, as it visited Dümmen Orange, Chisan Orchids, and Windmill Nursery. Dümmen had several notable introductions, including Wild Romance New Guinea impatiens in Blush Pink and White, which inspired the theme of its displays. One of the standout displays was its perennial combos with some new leucanthemum additions. Chisan Orchids in Los Alamos, CA, with Israeli breeders Hishtil, Jaldety, and Cohen Propagators, was a new stop on the route this year. Hishtil has a new gaura series out that includes a compact, low-growing variety, ‘Baby,’ with a mass of pink blooms. Cohen displayed Verbena ‘Mickey Red Rose,’ a unique bi-color that looks like a mixed combo, and Jaldety featured an interesting Cyperus prolifera. Windmill Nursery was the last stop of the day, with breeders Terra Nova Nurseries, Kientzler, J. Berry Nursery, and KiwiFlora. Terra Nova had several new heuchera for show, including ‘Onyx,’ which is a mounding, […]
