Danziger Collaborates with Walters Gardens, Expands Perennial Assortment
Danziger has announced it is expanding its perennials assortment with another creative collaboration and partnering with Walters Gardens to introduce multiple perennial varieties.
This vibrant collaboration will yield beautiful perennial cuttings — and exclusive introductions to satisfy and increase market demand for perennial plants.
Danziger entered a partnership with Walters Gardens to become its dedicated licensee and producer of vegetative cuttings outside of North America.
Danziger has previous successful production experience with Walters Gardens in North America. This step, along with Danziger’s steady growth in perennials, positions Danziger as a market leader in cutting production.
“Creativity and collaboration are a hallmark of our business, and this exciting partnership showcases our commitment to those core values,” says Amir Dor, Director of sales at Danziger. “At the end of the day, we are here to serve our customers, and we are accommodating high demand for quality perennial plants. Together with Walters Gardens, today, we can deliver exciting plant varieties that consumers want in their gardens.”
Danziger will produce a multitude of perennial varieties, many of which are exclusive. Trials will take place during 2022, targeting commercialization in 2023.
Leading varieties include phlox ‘Opening Act Ultrapink,’ monarda ‘Leading Lazy Razzberry,’ and sedum ‘Tiramisu’.
Phlox ‘Opening Act Ultrapink’ blooms earlier than typical hybrid phlox, with a show of dark-green and glossy foliage that is mildew and disease resistant. It also holds up better in heat and humidity than other Phlox varieties. Ultrapink is the brightest, most vibrant color in the Opening Act Phlox Collection.
Monarda ‘Leading Lady Razzberry’ blooms in early summer, before most Bee Balms. It produces raspberry-purple flowers on dark green leaves, and it stays contained in gardens. Naturally deer-resistant, it attracts pollinators.
Part of the ROCK ‘N GROW collection, sedum ‘Tiramisu’ is an upright plant, which displays many colors over the growing season, much like the colors of the decadent dessert. ‘Tiramisu’ passed our stringent multi-year trials by not lodging, maintaining its beautiful shape all the way to the end of the season.
Exclusive varieties and creative genetics will bring fresh options to the market. “We have always been impressed by the Danziger approach, quality, and their solid reputation,” says John Walters, CEO, Walters Gardens. “Walters Gardens is excited to be partnering with Danziger to offer our genetics from the Danziger Farm and excited they will be available to the EU market.”
