10 NEW  GREENHOUSE  PLANTS  for  2013     Ivy  Geranium  Series  ‘Great  Balls  of  Fire’   Dümmen’s  new  Great  Balls  of  Fire  series  of  ivy  geraniums  has  eight  colors.  Leaves  have  a  velvety  texture.   Their  branching  and  mounding  habit  trails  over  the  edge  of  the  pot,  which  makes  them  a  perfect  choice   for  hanging  baskets.  We  love  how  heat  tolerant  the  plants  are  and  how  they  produce  so  many  large  ball   shaped  double  flowers.    They  are  aptly  named!      

Calliope Geraniums  ‘Lavender  Rose’  and  ‘Deep  Rose’   Calliope Geraniums are a breakthrough in floral genetics; a cross between Ivy Geraniums (most commonly used in hanging baskets) and Zonal Geraniums (most commonly found in pots. Taking the best characteristics from both, these geraniums are bred to provide dynamic color all summer long in our heat and humidity. We fell in love with the two newest colors and think you will too.  

Calibrachoa  (Million  Bells  Petunias)  ‘Superbells-­‐  Lemon  Slice’  

Woo-­‐hoo! There  is  nothing  more  super  than  Superbells.  If  there  was  a  word  that  meant  extra,  extra  super   it  still  wouldn't  be  as  super  as  we  are.  Calibrachoas  are  a  new  type  of  plants  that  sort  of  look  like  little   Petunias,  which  makes  sense  seeing  as  we're  related.  Only  Superbells  aren't  sticky,  perk  right  back  up   after  it  rains,  and  stay  compact  and  bushy  even  when  we  are  stressed.    This  white  and  yellow  bicolor   makes  a  huge  statement  in  container  or  in  the  garden.  

Calibrachoa  ‘Aloha  Kona’  Series  

We love how compact and uniform this new series of calibrachoa grows. Aloha Kona colors are bright and vivid, especially the sassy ‘Aloha Kona Mandarin’. It will definitely make an eye-catching hanging basket or container planter.

Supertunia  ‘Picasso  in  Pink’  

The unique  bicolor  of  this  Petunia  has  created  a  tremendous  amount  of  interest  from  gardeners,  with  a   softer  violet  petal  surrounded  by  a  chartreuse  edge  and  a  more  compact  habit  than  SupertuniaPretty   Much  Picasso®.    The  bicolor  blooms  are  heat  and  drought  tolerant  and  do  not  require  deadheading.  The   lighter  pink  color  is  very  eye-­‐catching  and  is  a  great  contrast  to  the  lime  green  edging.    

Trailing Verbena  ‘Lanai  Twister  Pink’,  ‘Voodoo  Star  Red’  and  ‘Voodoo  Star  Pink’   A  couple  reasons  to  love  this  plant  series  –  first  is  the  very  fun  color  pattern  of  the  flower!  A  blob  of    the   deeper  tone  sits  on  a  white  background  –  in  a  cool  swirl  of  color  The  flowers  are  showy  and  this  variety   flowers  its  head  off  all  summer.    Exceptional  powdery  mildew  resistance.    Award-­‐winning  "Best  in  Class"   garden  performance.  

Cool  Wave  Pansies  

These pansies  are  ideal  for  cool  season  baskets,  spillers  in  mixed  combos,  or  high  impact  ground  cover.     They  have  the  most  vigor  of  spreading  pansies,  so  fewer  plants  per  pot  are  needed.    They  are  the  hardiest   pansy  for  overwintering    and  should  be  the  first  to  bloom  in  spring.  We  are  offering  them  in  hanging   baskets  for  the  early  season  and  6-­‐packs  to  plant  in  the  ground  or  your  containers.    They  come  in  4  colors   and  a  mix.
