This week at the HTA National Plant Show (June 23 & 24, 2015) we unveiled several new plants for 2016.
We launched Leucanthemum ‘Daisy Chains’, Geranium ‘Little Charmer’, Salvia greggii ‘Joy’ and Hebe ‘Super Red’.
Adam Dunnett, our Sales and Marketing Director, explained: “Leucanthemum ‘Daisy Chains’, Geranium ‘Little Charmer’ and Salvia greggii ‘Joy’ have all been produced by New World Plants.
“Leucanthemum is truly eye catching and looks perfect in a pot. It has a bushy but compact growing habit – 45cm x 45cm. It is also strong flowering, producing an abundance of pure white daisies on short stems with vivid yellow eyes throughout summer. The flowers are a magnet to bees and butterflies.
“Geranium ‘Little Charmer’ is a new introduction, seven years in the breeding. A very tight, compact mound shaped geranium with finely cut foliage. It has masses of deep purple flowers, which smother the foliage from mid-June. It is very hardy and not invasive. Ideal for planting in pots and front of borders. The name says it all.
“Salvia greggii ‘Joy’ is a very attractive, bright and cheery new salvia with long lasting bicolour flowers of strong pink and white. Joy will flower throughout the summer with dead heading. Trim after flowering and it will form a neat and compact mound shape reaching 50-60cm tall with lovely fresh green foliage. This plant is ideal for a range of areas including beds, borders and containers. A fantastic high impulse plant.”
We have a significant product range and are regularly introducing new plants. We offer a large variety of trees, shrubs, hedging, herbaceous and specimen plants to garden centres, landscape contractors, local authorities, foresters and landowners.
Adam added: “Our final new plant is Hebe ‘Super Red’. It was discovered and bred by us at Wyevale Nurseries. Hebe ‘Super Red’ was seen growing amongst Hebe Red Edge on our nursery by our now Managing Director, Andy Johnson. One of the plants with a particularly distinct red flush to the leaves stood out from the rest of the batch. It was darker in colour, even in growth and a definite improvement on the well-known Hebe Red Edge. We propagated it and named it ‘Super Red’.
“With stems which appear almost purple, this glaucous plant has new red foliage and a red hue to the leaves, which deepens into winter. Super Red is ideal for planting in beds, borders and makes a stunning low hedge.”
