Botany Lane is inviting growers, retailers, wholesalers, and customers to an open house at the Denver Botanic Gardens on March 21, 2019 to celebrate the first day of spring and preview new introductions from Proven Winners.

Meagan Owens from Proven Winners and Andy Huntington from Pleasant View Gardens will unveil new varieties for 2019 and discuss promotional opportunities and information available to retailers.
“Proven Winners is very excited to be furthering our partnership with Botany Lane by taking part in this great event. We can’t wait to share the Proven Winners story and talk about some great new varieties and must haves for the 2019 Season,” Owens said. “We also look forward to sharing the many different ways Botany Lane customers can put Proven Winners marketing to work in their garden centers!”
Plant Select plants are designed to thrive in high plains and intermountain regions, and Botany Lane Greenhouse produces liners and finished plants of some of the company’s most popular offerings, including penstemon, delosperma, agastache and more.

We will also be featuring the newest varieties of Hollywood Hibiscus and Diamantina Dipladenia and Mandevillia hybrids from Ball Ingenuity,” says Scott Fulton, general manager of Botany Lane Greenhouse.
