Extravaganza THE AIM OF PROVEN WINNERS is to introduce the best, most unique, high performing plants, producing them to maximum quality standards, and to market the plants in an innovative way. Proven Winners plants are unsurpassed in terms of flowering, growth habit, disease resistance, and garden performance. Senorita Rosalita®
NO OTHER PLANT LINE goes through the same rigorous selection process, which takes 2-3 years and is carried out at facilities in the U.S. and Canada, as well as at trial stations in Europe, South Africa, and Japan. Most Proven Winner varieties are protected by plant patents and breeders’ rights. Their viral control process is also second to none and sets Proven Winners apart from its competitors. BESIDES PRODUCING BETTER PLANTS, Proven Winners is also credited with creating the “container gardening” craze, and introducing new plant genera. Most consumers had never heard of Bacopa, Nemesia, Verbena, etc. until Proven Winners pioneered these varieties.
