was traveling with one of our territory managers a few months ago when I quickly became frustrated after our first visit. We had a great conversation about roses and wrote a nice rose plug order for immediate

shipment (always good to walk away with an order when traveling with your team), but something was missing.

I took the lead with the conversation and started asking our customer why they were not growing more of our woody shrub genetics, particularly Loropetalum Cerise Charm, Gardenia ‘Buttons’ and Moonlit Lace® Viburnum. I explained that all three varieties were far superior to the plants this customer was already growing, and

than just roses.” The last sentence was like a punch to my gut. I know our territory manager in this area of the country is an excellent sales professional, and I also know he has probably presented these genetics to this customer every year for the last few years. So, why doesn’t this customer see Star®

Roses and Plants as more than just “a rose company”? After running into this same problem over the next few months with other customers in other territories, I think I finally realized the problem. No, we do not need a new sales team, but just like an over-achieving older sibling, our “AND PLANTS” just can’t come out of the long casting shadow that roses have created for over 120 years.

Akadama™ Hydrangea is definitely a Hydrangea you will want to add to your offering. This is one of the longest blooming Hydrangeas on the market today with its red color changing almost weekly. Add its beautiful, fall foliage color and you have one of the most dynamic flowering shrubs out there. Head over Heels® Hibiscus is an amazing, dark leafed, huge flower series that also has great sawfly and Japanese beetle resistance. This series has no mandatory container and can be used in your own program, resulting in more margin for you as the grower.

so in our breeding we have aimed to develop plants that require less labor to produce and grow in the landscape. Two examples of these types of genetics are our Perfection® Abelia series and our Dapper™ Buddleia series. The Perfection® Abelia series consists of tighter growing plants that do not throw “whips” like most other Abelia on the market today. This translates into less touches by both the grower and the landscaper. The Dapper™ series also requires almost

no pruning with its tight, compact habit and the outstanding characteristic of throwing new blooms before the older ones are spent, or in other words, “burying its dead.” Not only are we thrilled about these current breakthrough varieties; we are equally excited for what the future holds. Since breeding and producing woody plants takes a few years, I always like to talk

about what is coming down our pipeline. In the next few years, we hope to bring you a game changing series of Lilacs that will take a year off of your production cycle, along with great new forms of Hydrangea paniculata and Hydrangea quercifolia. Stay tuned for these unique additions. Now that you’ve had a sneak peek at our woodies, I can’t wait for you to dive into this catalog. There’s so much to explore. After you

This Hydrangea is a heavy bloomer with striking flower color that starts deep pink and gradually darkens. The contrast against clean, dark green foliage is stunning, and the compact habit makes it perfect for containers and small spaces.

any times, the standouts from indoor production just don’t cut it when it comes to three-gallon nursery production in the States. Akadama™ is

a little bit slower to reach finished size, but it’s well worth the wait. Our three-gallons in Pennsylvania put out the same incredible flower power, long bloom window, and sturdy stems that we saw in overseas amenity production. Akadama™ is not a re-bloomer, but it’s a long bloomer, gradually changing flower color based on the age of the bloom. Its flowers started opening in the beginning of May and remained attractive into the beginning of July. Not only do the flowers give you color, but the foliage turns a deep shade of burgundy in the cooler temperatures of spring and fall. If you want an extra eye-catcher, grow this variety in acidic soil like you would for blue-ing up your other macs and Akadama™ will turn an antique purple color.  Give this one a try in smaller containers, as well. One and two-gallons are great for decorating at home and will also help cut down some residency time if you’re a grower.

‘Red Hot’

“Tecoma ‘Red Hot’ was hand-selected by Civano Growers’ horticulturists for its quality, form and health. It boasts a unique color, compact habit and improved drought tolerance. Lightly fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers emerge deep crimson red, maturing to fiery, orange red with yellow centers. They’ll brighten up your landscape from early spring to late fall, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. They’re nearly seedless, so they can be planted in poolside containers with no mess. This hybrid is more drought tolerant and has better cold hardiness than the species. They are moderately deer and rabbit resistant and have no serious pest or disease problems.”
