Growers can browse through over 200 different cut flower varieties selected specifically for field production and creating consumer friendly bouquets and arrangements, and hundreds of bedding flower type varieties that are available for garden and landscape settings.
From phenomenal new petunias to 'first from seed' varieties, customers will find exciting new breeding innovations to include in their 2015 season product lineup. KaBloom, the first seed produced Calibrachoa brings all the benefits of seed produced varieties plus better disease tolerance, better branching and more economical production! The new Easy Wave Velour petunias have deep, rich colors with velvety undertones, and Success petunias are new spreading petunias that boast the earliest flowering of its class! Pollenless Vincent sunflowers have rounded overlapping petals that offer excellent flower fill. Glitz is a new seed produced euphorbia, a great candidate for mixed combos. And Mazurkia is a striking bicolor zinnia, sure to add both interest and texture to mixed bouquets. As these are just some highlights, growers should be sure to check out over 65 new flower varieties in the catalog and the Harris Seeds website.
The new catalog now features, for this first time, fine quality bareroot perennials from De Groot Inc. Since some perennials are simply unavailable from seed, Harris Seeds is excited to offer bareroot products to round out the perennial line. Customers will find essentials such as Clematis, Hosta, Hemerocallis (Daylily), and Peony in this catalog, and much more on the Harris Seeds website.
As readers flip through the catalog, they will notice more user-friendly symbols than ever before, for highlighting varieties that grow best in full sun, shade, are drought tolerant, 'Low Grow Approved', great in containers, customer favorites and more!
Lastly, to meet the growing demand for garden vegetables and patio edibles, the catalog lists a selection of the most popular vegetables for roadside stands, farmers' markets and garden centers. Growers will also find an expansive listing of quality tools and supplies for seed starting, plant protection, watering, harvesting, merchandising and more.
