The PlantHaven team had a fantastic time at the FarWest Show in Portland last month. Kevin Hobbs, Head of Research & Development at Hillier Nurseries in the UK, was one of several speakers featured and spoke on “Plants from Across the Pond”. Hillier Nurseries is a key PlantHaven breeder client. We have been delighted to introduce several awesome varieties already from Hillier Nurseries for first USA retail 2018.

PlantHaven is very excited to continue to work with Hillier, and we look forward to exciting new introductions in the years to come.

IN THE NEW VARIETIES SHOWCASE:
Among the stellar introductions so far, Corydalis HILLIER™ ‘Porcelain Blue’ has been turning heads since its first introduction in April at CAST 2017. The FarWest Show saw ‘Porcelain Blue’ taking home ribbons in both the “Award of Merit” and “People’s Choice” categories. This marvelous aqua blue flowered crop is indeed a crowd pleaser.

Other New Variety standouts were Dianthus AMERICAN PIE™ Collection and from UK breeder Clients PINKS BY WHETMAN®. The beautiful contemporary colors of this collection are a hit with consumers. New lifestyle videos are providing inspiration and highlighting the versatility of the flower, including how they can be used as edible additions to food and drinks. WATCH VIDEO

Viola MAGNIFI SCENT® varieties, also with edible flowers, were used to great effect as hanging containers to adorn an arbor; filling the air with their beautiful sweet fragrance. These flowers are particularly alluring in the early evening when their essential oils are freely released into the warm evening air.
