Spring Collection — 2004 Introductions


Nemesia hybrid

A breeding breakthrough in Germany led to this fantastic and
totally unique new series. The plants are mounded and then cascade over the
edge of the pot or basket. They flower in complete abandon often so covered in blooms
it is impossible to see the foliage. They come in a wide color range (Red,
yellow, white, cream, and bi-colors) with more to come soon. Sunsatia(TM) is
extremely versatile and thrives in a variety of temperatures handling both heat
and cold. The plants are excellent in pots, hanging baskets, and landscapes and
make an excellent combination plant. They can be used in much the same way as
Diascia but with a completely different color range. The six varieties are well
matched for habit and performance with Peach varying slightly, it is compact
upright instead of mounded trailing. The six cultivars are ‘Sunsatia(TM)
Banana’, ‘Sunsatia(TM) Coconut’, ‘Sunsatia(TM) Cranberry’, ‘Sunsatia(TM)
Lemon’, ‘Sunsatia(TM) Peach’, and ‘Sunsatia(TM) Pineapple’.


Impatiens hawkeri (New Guinea

New Guinea Impatiens burst onto the gardening scene a mere
30 years ago and have already become etched in gardeners minds. Shade plants
can be hard to find and New Guinea’s fill that niche with vibrant beauty. Now
comes Infinity(TM) a new series from renowned breeder Ludwig Kientzler. These
plants have been bred to be grower friendly with well matched vigorous habits
and finishing times but they also have the features that consumers demand:
large flowers, dark green to purple foliage, and a variety of color choices.
Their vigorous habit makes them an easy choice for 10″, 12″ or even
larger baskets plus they will shine in 4″, 5″, or even gallon pots
for production. For consumers Infinity(TM) is great in shade combination
planters, pots and baskets of all sizes and they are excellent in the
landscape. 17 colors are available
‘Infinity(TM) Blushing Lilac’, ‘Infinity(TM) Cherry Red’, ‘Infinity(TM) Dark
Pink’, ‘Infinity(TM) Dark Salmon Glow’, ‘Infinity(TM) Lavender’, ‘Infinity(TM)

‘Infinity(TM) Scarlet’, and ‘Infinity(TM) White’.


Osteospermum hybrid

Research has shown that daisy-type flowers are most popular
with consumers. Osteospermum have become better known with the introduction of
the Symphony series which has greater heat tolerance. Now we bring you
Soprano(TM) a new series of Osteospermum that compliments the Symphony series.
Soprano(TM) has compact habit and a long flowering period beginning in early
spring and continuing through the first few frosts of fall. These varieties are
excellent in containers and the landscape with good heat tolerance although not
as heat tolerant as Symphony. ‘Soprano(TM) Light Purple’, ‘Soprano(TM) Purple’,
and ‘Soprano(TM) White’ complement the yellows and peach-orange colors found in
