Campfire® Fireburst Improved Bidens Responding to the needs of growers, Proven Winners is replacing the original Campfire Fireburst Bidens this year with a more restrained, well-branched selection that works better in combination containers and hanging baskets. This vigorous plant thrives in heat and drought conditions where other flowers might need extra care, and its deep orange and yellow bicolour blooms keep right on coming from spring into fall. Dimensions are 12- 18” in height. Full sun. provenwinners.com ‘Green Twister’ Echinacea ‘Green Twister,’ from Jelitto, is a unique and colourful seed selection. This lively green coneflower will show natural variation in the colour and size of the green edge. A few flowers are light green but some are almost yellow-edged each with an increasing carmine-red centre. The petals are arranged around a large cone and there is very often a higher petal count. Flowering stems are shorter in the first year but normal size (around 100 cm/40”) in the second year. Many of these stems are a dark burgundy colour. www.jelitto.com Dahlia XXL Tabasco Bred for extra-large flowers, increased density of foliage, and earlier flowering, ‘XXL Tabasco’ joins the esteemed XXL Dahlia series from Dümmen Orange. After winning the prestigious Les Exceptionelles® award this year, these jumbo dahlias are now the undisputed top-choice for garden performance and retail positioning. Launched in 2006, Les Exceptionnelles is an independent testing program of new flower cultivars in Quebec. Candidates are judged for natural superiority in the garden by consumers through public voting at the trial garden and a panel of horticulture professionals. Les Exceptionnelles are chosen for their beauty, performance, and easy care, as well as their insect and disease resistance. na.dummenorange.com Lantana Bloomify “Bloomify will not multiply!” The first certified sterile lantana series on the market was bred through the University of Florida and meets the needs of hot and humid locations. New Bloomify does not set seed, so it won’t go out of flower in the heat of summer. The series features better branching than the competition for a better appearance at retail. There are two colours for 2018 sales: Red and Rose. Gardeners will enjoy its mounded ball-shaped habit. www.ballfloraplant.com Petunia ‘Surfinia Trailing Red’ Rev up your reds with the new ‘Surfinia Trailing Red’ petunia from Suntory Flowers.
