It’s our favorite part of spring…time to look at new flower varieties for 2020!
Step out of quarantine and into the springtime sun! We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the world returning to normal, even if it’s in small steps. So while you’re gardening your heart out, pull some new blooms into your arsenal this year.
Brian Lloyd, with Olson’s Greenhouse, shares eight new flowers in greenhouses now.
New Flower Varieties for 2020
Petunia Headliner Crystal Sky (Selecta). A mounded petunia, pastel lilac color, covered in ‘stars’.
Petunia Amore Series (Danziger). Can you see the hearts in every petal? King of Hearts is the new red/white bicolor. Amore Purple is a striking deep purple with white. Brian’s favorite is Amore Pink Hearts – which is bundled in a “Love that Grows” gift combination.
Petunia Bee’s Knees (Ball FloraPlant). The most intense yellow petunia that will not fade, backed by dark green foliage.
Calibrachoa Can Can Bumble Bee Pink (Ball FloraPlant). This one looks like little bumble bees are feeding in the center of each bloom!
Didelta Silver Strand (Westhoff). A bullet proof summer performer, Silver Strand is a spreading succulent subshrub that is indestructible in the summer months. The semi trailing habit makes this an ideal component plant in hanging baskets and container gardens for a splash of velvety, silver color.
Geranium Super Moon Red (Selecta). This stunning, large-flowered zonal geranium features dark red blooms on a very strong, vigorous plant. It has unique, very dark stems that provide contrast. Heat-tolerant variety is perfect for the landscape.
Gerbera Garvinea Sweet Sunset (Florist). A real knockout with intense yellow centers and almost neon orange flowers. Garvinea is great for pollinator gardens.
Dahlia Sincerity (Syngenta Flowers). Big. Bold. Beautiful. Noted for its 3 to 4-inch pink and white bicolor flowers, this variety is truly eye-catching. Well-branched plants make a shapely backdrop for the showy blooms. A perfect choice for the landscape and high-end patio containers.
