Terra Nova Nurseries

This perennial has electrifying dark red veins that spark over huge gold leaves, with eye-catching foliage color that holds well throughout the season. Compared to Terra Nova Nurseries’ Delta Dawn, Red Lightning Heuchera has bigger leaves and stronger vein color. Red Lightning is “villosa-strong” and draws attention from across the garden. It’s heat and humidity tolerant, and attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Red Lightning has a fast growth rate and mounding habit. It works well in borders, mass planting, accents, mixed beds or mixed containers.

For controlling daylength, multi-layered Obscura screens from Svensson are the ideal light deprivation solution, providing 99.9% blackout—enough for even the most sensitive plants. Maximize grow space, control flowering and humidity, and cut residual light during critical times for consistent growth and quicker turns. Find complete details in Svensson’s smartphone app for iPhone and Android or visit their website.

SHS Griffin
Among the earliest and most uniform standard gerbera on the market today, the Jaguar series sets the standard in 4- to 5-in. pots. Short, thick stems and a tidy habit make Jaguar a favorite among growers and retailers alike. Strong bloom velocity and retail appeal drive impulse sales among consumers. Jaguar ProFormula Mix, an SHS Griffin exclusive, is a super-uniform blend that represents the full range of Jaguar colors and shades. It’s the perfect choice for growers with demanding production schedules.

Summit Plastic Co.

3D Systems pots aren’t round or square, but D-shaped, providing direction, dimension and display. These time-saving pots only go in one way—always the right way—the first time. By automation or by hand, there are no mistakes on placement in 3D matching trays. 3D Systems comes in five sizes (pint, quart, 1.25 qt., 2.5 qt. and 3 qt.)—the true dimensions are cost savers compared to their true round counterparts. More on the floor, more on shipping racks and more facings at retail. The retail messaging is always facing outward, up front all the time and takes a large label. 

Ball FloraPlant
The new Black And Bloom Salvia has big impact: thicker leaf, larger bloom and darker stem than Black And Blue. It’s also tough as nails—it thrives in heat, drought and humidity. Its desirable blue color stands out against the black stem. It’s eye-catching in every landscape and makes a great container thriller. Brings in pollinators, too; hummingbirds, bees and butterflies all flock to it and add more interest to yards and municipal plantings. 

McConkey Company
The new Calypso collection from McConkey Company features a unique prevention tool, plus adds punch to a simple design form. Calypso baskets and bowls incorporate McConkey’s exclusive locking tag, which prevents consumers from swapping out cheaper pot labels with those of premium containers. The innovation has successfully reduced shrink in retailer and grower tests. GT
