New branded plant collection will debut this spring

| January 9, 2012




The first live plant collection to focus exclusively on top performing plants for the Western gardener—the Sunset Western Garden Collection—will debut this spring with 23 new introductions, according to Sunset magazine and Plant Development Services Inc.

“We are thrilled that Sunset’s garden experts and Plant Development Services have collaborated to develop this unique line of high quality plants specifically for Western gardeners,” said Barb Newton, president of Sunset Publishing. “Gardening continues to be a core interest of our readers, and it is exciting to be able to introduce our favorite plants directly to them in a launch that coincides with this spring’s publication of The New Sunset Western Garden Book and the re-launch of our popular online Plant Finder database that includes the introduction of a companion mobile app.”

The Sunset Western Garden Collection will hit retail shelves beginning in April 2012 in California. Distribution will expand to the 13 Western states in the Sunset magazine reading area in the coming years.

“We’re really excited about these new introductions. They’re water-wise and easy care and uniquely fit the needs of the Western gardener,” said Kip McConnell, director of Plant Development Services.
