Dümmen Orange Honors Late Broker Representative

Dümmen Orange will honor the memory of the late Matt Willoughby, who unexpectedly passed away earlier this year, by offering a special calibrachoa combination specifically chosen by his wife, Jennifer, and their three children, Samuel, Mason and Connor.

The Confetti Garden Bloomtastic Summer Solstice mix features Bloomtastic Rose Quartz, Bloomtastic Yellow and Bloomtastic Pink Flare. These three Bloomtastic calibrachoa varieties are the most heat-tolerant calibrachoas on the market today and were a favorite of the well-known southern plantsman. Boasting an excessive flower size with a unique shimmer to the petals, the summer-long flowering holds strong through even the warmest summers of the Willoughby trial.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Confetti Garden Bloomtastic Summer Solstice combination will benefit Willoughby’s surviving children. A college fund has been set up for his young kids and a portion of all sales of this special combo will be donated to the fund.

Well-known and a highly respected plantsman in the horticulture industry, he worked for Vaughan’s Horticulture and Michell’s prior to that. Willoughby was also an alumnus of GPN’s Forty Under 40 Class of 2015.

Contact your preferred broker representative for additional details on how to add the Confetti Garden Bloomtastic Summer Solstice combo to your lineup of gardening products.
