Proven Winners searches the world to bring you vibrant flowering annuals, perennials and shrubs that deliver the most beautiful garden performance. Drop by the Proven Winners “Must See Plants” Showcase at Canada Blooms for a peek at what is new and exciting for the 2019 growing season, you’re sure to fall in love.
Here are are just five that you won’t want to miss:
1. Angelface® Cascade White Angelonia
Gardeners love summer snapdragons for their extreme heat, humidity and drought tolerance. Until now they were strictly upright plants that make for showy thrillers in containers and landscapes. The new Angelface Cascade varieties are different in that they have larger flowers and have branches reaching outward and downward. This makes them perfect for hanging baskets and upright containers as a filler and a spiller. Pair them with other sun loving annuals and they will easily weave their way in and around to create full combination containers with their all summer blooms. Full sun, 8-14” in height with a spread of 12-30”.
2. Amazel™ Basil Ocimum
This is truly a game changing plant—it is the first Italian sweet basil that is highly resistant to downy mildew, a disease that often plaques basil. And since it is a sterile plant, this large vigorous basil produces a higher amount of large, deliciously aromatic leaves. The more you harvest, the better it grows. It’s time to make the switch from your old basil…to Amazel! Will reach a height of 36” with a spread of 24”, very large for a basil variety. Best in full sun.
3. Truffula Pink Gomphrena
This is an easy to grow annual with hot pink, cotton ball-shaped blooms that pollinators adore. Also a perfect plant for fresh bouquets and dried crafts and arrangements too. A plant that thrives in heat and humidity. Will reach 30” in height, with a spread of 24”. Best in full sun.
4. Supertunia Vista® Paradise Petunia
If you love our Supertunia Vista® Bubblegum then you’ll love how this new variety will blanket your landscape with a wave of watermelon pink blooms. This plant will continue to thrive in heat and humid conditions with no deadheading needed. Will reach 24” in height with a spread up to 36”. Best in full sun with a regular application of water soluble plant food for amazing performance.
5. Rockin’ Fuchsia Salvia
This is a hummingbird magnet like no other plant! These intense fuchsia flowers on black stems have deep throats that hold plenty of nectar for your favorite pollinators. A color never seen before in this type of salvia. Will grow up to 36” in height with a spread of 30”. Best in full sun.
