Echinacea Artisan Yellow Ombre
NEW Yellow Ombre joins the Artisan Collection of seed Echinacea that offers consistency of plant structure for uniform and highly branched, full plants. The series also provides uniformity of flowering, so all plants are ready to sell at the same time. Plus, the benefit of a seed input provides flexibility for production, so it fits better in your schedule. Yellow Ombre features a more upright habit than Red Ombre and Soft Orange, and the foliage is a lighter mid-green.
Perovski Bluesette is a new novelty variety with a controlled habit, early flowering and early finishing, which makes it easy to grow for the consumer and landscape market. It’s the first and only, compact, branching and early Perovskia from seed. This superb garden plant features a long flowering period with ornamental foliage, as well as a pleasing fragrance that attracts bees and butterflies.
Here’s a new first-year-flowering solution for growers that cannot finish Goldsturm under their natural growing conditions. NEW Goldblitz provides a more economical input option for natural daylength growers, as the plus do not require special treatment to perform to the same quality as Goldsturm. This low-maintenance variety features tight foliage with shiny, dark green leaves that hold back weeds and flower abundantly from Summer well into Fall. Its golden yellow horizontal petals contrast nicely with the black center disc.
