Recommended Products

Brew-Tea-Ful Camellia

Gardeners can grow their own tea leaves at home! This is a great patio/container plant. Freshly made tea is much more flavorful and higher in antioxidants. Tea is produced by harvesting the tips of the branches and then drying the leaves.

Armageddon Pepper

Armageddon is the world’s first F1 hybrid super-hot chili measuring at 1.3 million scovilles. This gives a fantastic grower advantage in terms of improved plant vigor and fruit uniformity. It is the earliest maturing super-hot variety by 14 days.

Primavera Lavandula stoechas

A Spanish Lavender that will flower throughout Summer to extend the sales season. Can be programmed for very early flowering for markets in the deep south, or for summer sales in the north. It’s the most versatile of Spanish Lavender varieties.

Bee's Knees Petunia

Bee’s Knees from Ball FloraPlant is filled with lush blooms and puts on a high-impact show all season long. It brings the most intense yellow petunia to the market, along with the best performance.

Lizzard Leaf Celosia Foliage, Sol™

Foliage celosia are accent palnts that bring color and texture to containers and gardens. The Sol Collection launches with two varieties that produce relatively fast with no downy mildew issues. Both hold well at retail.

Headliner™ Petunia

These unique star-studded sky patterns create a dramatic effect in hanging baskets and containers. Headliner petunias from Selecta One are the perfect way to catch the eye!

Artisan™ Collection Echinacea

Artisan Collection™ from PanAmerican Seed elevates seed Echinacea to offer consistency of plant structure for uniform and highly branched, full plants. It also provides uniformity of flowering, so all plants are ready to sell at the same time.

Lucky Star® Pentas

The fastest follow-up blooms of any pentas on the market! Lucky star is full of vibrant-colored blooms that attract bees, butterflies and shoppers.

Cannova® Canna

The first seed F1 canna series offers an easy-to-grow option. Improved young plant performance means more useable plugs that are uniform and earlier.

Hot Pak™ French Marigold

Specially bred and trialed in areas of the world with high temperatures. “Developed in the heat for the heat.” A great choice for mass planting.

An All-America Selections National Award Winner with rich, deep red bloom color and a hedge-like habit. The most vigorous series in the Wave family.
