Suntory introduces a rich Dark Pink to its Grandaisy intergeneric hybrid argyranthemum series. Full, vigorous plants produce large flowers with striking dark centers. Much showier than a standard argy and perfect for premium patio pots. Plant one cutting in a gallon pot. Also new for Grandaisy is Red Improved, replacing Red with a richer, deeper red bloom with less fade. Position these plants for peak spring sales. Perfect for Easter and Mother’s Day

Coleus Under the Sea Gold Guppy from Hort Couture is so bright, sun-loving and well-behaved. It makes perfect little mounds of bright golden leaves that are weather resistant and thick. This has so many applications in the garden and mixed containers.

Lobelia Blue Jeans from Evanthia has an excellent garden performance. Bred for professional greenhouse culture, it is earlier to flower than standard varieties. The compact plants are covered with attractive blue blooms.
