John’s favorite flowers for Spring 2012:
SUPERBELLS® Cherry Star Calibrachoa hybrid
SUPERBELLS® Cherry Star has consistent rich cherry petals with a breeding
break-through bright yellow star pattern that stays stable, even in the heat.
Like all SUPERBELLS, Cherry Star delivers vibrant color, heat tolerance,
superior disease resistance, and large blooms that make this variety a ‘star’
performer. Plants bloom earlier in the season than other market varieties.
SUPERTUNIA® White Russian Petunia hybrid
SUPERTUNIA varieties are exceptional performers no matter how and where
you use them. They create extraordinary hanging baskets and containers
because their compact habit means they fill in quickly and don’t get leggy.
White Russian has an antique white look that seemingly matches anything
that it is put next to. It is one of the most versatile varieties in the market.
SWEET CAROLINE Bewitched Improved Ipomoea batatas
As if the SWEET CAROLINE line of Ipomoeas weren’t intriguing enough, the
breeders at North Carolina State University have given the industry one of the
most enchanting varieties in Bewitched Improved. With darker foliage, more
leaf texture, and better branching, this improvement will be sure to delight.
Combine with SUPERTUNIA® White Russian Petunia and SUPERBELLS®
Dreamsicle Calibrachoa, and you’ve got a combination that will charm long
SUPERBELLS® Sweet Tart Calibrachoa hybrid
Calibrachoa hybrida ‘Superbells Sweet Tart’ is a beautiful new introduction
from Proven Winners. The flowers have large yellow throats surrounded by
the cheeriest of pinks. Covered in blooms all season long its vigorous
mounding / trailing habit will quickly fill in sunny window boxes,
combination planters and hanging baskets. No deadheading is required.
Very low maintenance and disease resistance makes Superbells a winner!
SUPERBENA® Royale Iced Cherry Verbena hybrid
Reminiscent of a frosty cherry Popsicle, this plant offers a refreshing burst of
color to any landscape or combination. As a Royale, Iced Cherry has an early
compact habit, yet as a SUPERBENA, it becomes a vigorous spreading plant
that will fill in any landscape or combination container for the gardener. The
flowers are sweetly fragrant and the exceptional branching creates cascades
of flower clusters.
SUPERBELLS® Grape Punch Calibrachoa hybrid
The newest member to the SUPERBELLS Punch line, Grape Punch is making a
splash in the market. Large, pure purple blooms with a deep purple throat
adorn the foliage of this mounding trailer. Perfect for combinations, this
beauty will sweeten up almost anything that it is combined with. It would
also look stunning as a mono container or basket. Like all SUPERBELLS,
Grape Punch delivers heat tolerance and superior disease resistance. Plants
bloom earlier in the season than other market varieties.
