Fire Up Spring Sales with Little Dragon Nemesia
Santa Barbara, California — PlantHaven International is excited to offer the most durable nemesia on the market to garden centers this spring. While nemesia is a plant known for its frost tolerance and early spring appeal, Penhow Plants’ breeding efforts have expanded nemesia’s garden strength with the introduction of Little Dragon nemesia.
These long-lasting performers flower freely from early spring to late autumn. Unlike other nemesia, the Little Dragon collection exhibits exceptional heat tolerance that will hold blooms through summer and into fall frosts.
Three gorgeous bi-color varieties make up the series with showy and dramatic blooms:
- Azure Flame – rich purple and white with bright yellow eye
- Eternal Flame – cheery rose and white with bright yellow eye
- Princess Mix – a mix of Azure Flame and Eternal Flame
And if their aesthetic appeal and weather tolerance weren’t enough, gardeners will love Little Dragon nemesia’s strongly vanilla-scented blooms. Dramatic colors paired with delightful fragrance will make Little Dragon a striking impulse plant.
The performance from Penhow’s groundbreaking nemesia is second to none. See for yourself at www.penhowplants.com/nemesia/, where you can browse galleries and discover gardening tips.
