Superior genetics

Pansy Premier is bred by Sakata. Strong parent breeding lines meant that when it came to updating to the market requirements of large-flowered pansy varieties, Pansy Premier benefited from the company’s heritage in pansy breeding. The result - a totally uniform series with the following features:

  • A uniform, compact plant habit but with side stems for repeat flowering
  • Flower size uniformity and flowers close to the plant frame
  • Colour clarity with no variation that includes blotch, clear and novelty colours
  • Strong roots and plant, a pansy that will perform in summer production as well as cooler times.

Rigorous breeding procedures

Once the plant characteristics had been achieved, Sakata looked further for:

  • Seed productionis the series/colour viable to offer commercially in terms of seed quantity
  • Seed germinationproduction requirements for efficient production demand test germ over 95%
  • Strengthenough vigour in post germ to resist common diseases such as Rizoctonia, Pythium, Phytophera’

As a spokesperson for Sakata explains: “When our breeding team was happy we'd overcome all the above we moved to commercial trials, including our partners in confidential trials. If the candidates prove worthy of introduction, we built stock to ensure reliability of supply for our distributors. Unlike some competitive varieties, Premier is available for open distribution.”

Reliable and predictable seed makes sure that Pansy Premier young plants are healthy and vigorous with a good habit; ultimately providing the retailer with good sales and the public, pleasure in their garden.
