PennLive.com, which delivers news to consumers and businesses in Central Pennsylvania and all across the state, recently worked with local growers, garden centers, and other plant experts to give consumers a feel for some of the latest annuals varieties hitting the market this year.
“A new line of old-fashioned impatiens that fight off deadly downy mildew disease, a zinnia that does shade, and what could be the best vinca yet top the list of interesting new annual flowers debuting in 2019,” according to George Weigel, a garden writer and horticulturist who provides gardening content for PennLive.com. “Growers, local garden centers, and other plant experts picked those and more for our best-new-plants series we put together each January, a good month for gardeners to plan what to plant in the coming season.”
Some of the new annual flowers are available in seeds or plants online and in some plant catalogs. Most also will show up in plant form in selected local garden centers beginning in late April to early May.
