Bedding, Basket and Patio 2020
Aligning our products with market influences for 2020, new varieties and colours have been selected to meet the needs of professional commercial and retail growers.
Seed raised summer flowering:
New varieties include the new all-weather Begonia Viking Chocolate, which provides a fast-growing mass of colour. Large plants loaded with flowers make it great for landscapes and containers. No other begonia series in this class offers chocolate foliage.
- Another new option is Begonia Emperor, which delivers the largest flowers and shortest crop time on the market
- New colour Purple Shades has been added to the popular Cosmos Sonata series and new to the Verbena Tuscany is the colour Blue Imp.
Cutting raised summer flowering:
The Nemesia range has been further expanded with new colours; these are Sunpeddle® Painted Plum, which offers a semi-trailing habit. Two more colours have been added to the British-bred Nemesia Aroma™ – Heart of Gold, a distinct bicolour that is a bolder plant than the other Aromas, and Plums and Custard Imp. This improved version offers more vigour than the original.
Four new colours have also been introduced to the compact and early blooming Bella® Fuchsia range, which is becoming an increasingly popular range.
To support the growing demand for the award-winning BeautiCal®, new colours have been added. This all-weather petunia is now available in French Vanilla and Bordeaux.
