California Spring Trials 2015 - Top 3 Eye-Catchers
  • Posted May 28, 2015

Check out these three show-stopping new plant offerings we found at the California Spring Trials!

Echibeckia Summerina™ – Coneflower and Black-eyed Susan have been paired to create a new perennial with the looks of Rudbeckia (Black-eyed Susan) and the Hardiness of Echinacea (Coneflower). Echibeckia offers large blooms from early summer to mid-autumn. Currently you can find 'Summerina™ Yellow' and 'Summerina™ Orange' in garden centers, but more choices will be introduced over the next few years.

Night Sky Petunia – Wow! The spattered paint effect never looked so good! But you'll have to wait until its release in the 2017 gardening season to add this bit of artistry to your outdoor spaces.

Ladyslippers® Streptocarpus – This is an old school plant improved upon and ready for a comeback! These long blooming Ladyslippers ® varieties are wonderful outdoors in shade or indoors near an east or west facing window. A variety of colors and flower forms are available now, with more coming.
