Dümmen Orange Coleus Receives AAS Honors

Exceptional performance at 20 trial sites recently earned Dümmen Orange’s coleus ‘Main Street Beale Street’ top honors as a 2020 All-American Selections Ornamental Winner.

The new variety, available for the 2020 retail season is the first-ever coleus to be named an AAS Winner.

The AAS comparison trials, conducted at trial sites across North America, showed that Main Street Beale Street was the only true red coleus to be fully sun tolerant, with no signs of bleaching, scorching, or flecking.

Main Street Beale Street flowered six weeks later than comparable varieties, allowing it to last longer in landscape plantings. Along with the rest of the Main Street series, it offers robust, full plants with late flowering and adaptability to full sun and shade.

“Main Street Beale Street was selected to be the best true red on the market, and we’re excited to see that validated by the AAS program. We have been testing true reds for five years in conjunction with the University of Florida, and this one has raised the bar,” says Emily Mason, IPT Lead for Bed & Balcony Plants at Dümmen Orange. “Beale Street is a variety that will turn heads at retail, and keep consumers happy through the end of the season.”
