Capitalize on the tropical trend by adding this distinctive Colocasia with dramatically cupped, olive green foliage and mocha accents.
As tropicals continue to trend upward, there’s never been a better time to expand your offering of tropical container plants. Our Colocasias make dynamic thrillers in large container recipes, similar to how Heart to Heart™ Caladiums bring a tropical vibe to small and medium sized container combinations.
‘Coffee Cups’ is one of the most distinctive Caladiums you’ll find. You will recognize it by its dramatically cupped, deep olive green leaves which catch the day’s dew and rain. As the “cups” fill up, they tip towards the crown of the plant to give itself a drink. This plant loves moisture and welcomes it
We’ve improved upon the classic Mexican petunia by making it behave. Our selection is sterile, non-running, denser and more compact than standard Ruellia, with larger flowers, too.Essential late season and winter color for the South
Mexican petunias are classic landscape plants in the South but have a reputation for spreading where they aren’t wanted. We’ve eliminated those worries with Machu™ Morado, a sterile, non-running selection. This is a denser, more compact plant that won’t flop or split, even in hot, humid climates where this plant grows as an evergreen perennial in zones 9-11. Ruellia initiates buds when nights are a minimum of 63-65°F and days are 85-90°F. Machu Morado’s bright periwinkle purple flowers, which are larger than standard Ruellia, will bloom all winter if nights remain warm.
Selected for its nestled branching, fuller, uniform habit and season-long flowering, this brick red selection represents an advancement in heat tolerant Osteospermum breeding.
Osteospermum has undergone a revolution in the breeding world. Plants that were once grown solely as cool season crops for spring and fall now have a greatly expanded sales window due to their increased heat tolerance. Many parts of the country can now sell Bright Lights Osteospermum as an all-season performer, while they continue to be offered through the winter in the warmest climates. Bright Lights Red is a unique color addition to the series, bearing brick red blossoms on full, uniform plants with nestled branching that doesn’t open up. Growers will find these are some of the easiest Osteospermum to produce.
This robust, early spring flowering perennial is a solid win for growers nationwide. Bergenia expands the palette for shade, offering both floral and foliage interest.
The selection of Proven Winners Perennials for shade is expanding with the addition of a new Bergenia. Growers will love its enhanced vigor and full, robust habit that fills a pot fully due to the broader, dark green foliage. An early spring bloom time guarantees spring color at retail and is a welcome sight for gardeners after a long winter. Improvements over standard Bergenia cultivars on the market include a more consistent, bright pink flower color and a fuller canopy of foliage. Bronze-burgundy fall color extends this evergreen perennial’s interest late into the season. This squeaky leafed perennial nicknamed “pigsqueak” is a must-have for children’s gardens.
Selected for its excellent basal branching, long-lasting flower performance and large, full flowers. Produced from tissue culture to ensure uniformity in color and habit.

In addition to their pure beauty, consumers will enjoy that they make a long-lasting cut flower and tend to draw pollinators and goldfinches into the garden.
