Botany Lane to Provide Ball Ingenuity’s Diamantina Genetics

Botany Lane Greenhouse has announced that it will be a key provider of the relaunched Ball Ingenuity Diamantina dipladenia and mandevilla genetics.

Formerly sold under the Summer Romance umbrella, the Diamantina varieties are tropical bloomers with exceptional performance during hot weather.

Botany Lane Greenhouse, with two locations in Colorado and one in Texas, will provide pre-finished and finished plants to customers across the country.

Original Mandevilla genetics come from the Diamantina region of Brazil, known for diamond mining. French breeders are behind the outstanding Jade, Opal, Tourmaline, and Agate series of plants, and the 2019 re-branding marks a return to the plants’ roots. The three new varieties are available in limited trial quantities.

Both bush and vining types from the Diamantina series bloom earlier than other mandevilla/dipladenia varieties and keep going in warm temperatures.

In 2020, the line is set to expand with orange-coral bicolor choices in both bush (Jade Series) and vining (Opal series) and a deep fuchsia bush type to complement the pale pink Tourmaline Bush Pink that’s available now.
