2016 featured plants
UpShoot is highlighting four new plants in their trade and consumer marketing efforts in 2016. We know you’ll want them in your production plan if they aren’t already!
Old Fashioned Cotinus was first featured in theNursery Management New Plant Pavilion earlier in ’15 followed by its debut in the New Varieties Showcase at Farwest and the July issue of OAN’sThe Digger. It appears in the December 2015 New Plant issue of American Nurseryman and theDecember plant profile in Garden Center Magazine. It is slated to appear in the Jan/Feb New Plants feature in select Northern State-by-State Gardening Magazines and It will be seen in the New Plant Fashion Show at The Western in Kansas City.
Virginian Arborvitae, first seen in the Nursery Management New Pavilion issue, is also featured in the December 2015 new plant issue of American Nurseryman. Just see how tight and full the liner is compared to Green Giant in a photo taken at Silver Falls Nursery in Oregon.
Two plants will be featured in the Nursery Management 2016 New Plant Pavilion; Sharon Kay Viburnum andFlaming Moon Variegated Dogwood.
Sharon Kay is not any ordinary Viburnum; it is a re-bloomer flowering up to 3 times in a growing season, both in our test garden in NE Ohio and atVan Essen Nursery’s trial garden in Oregon.
Flaming Moon is a selected native. This Florida Dogwood has white flowers in the spring followed by creme and green variegated foliage. Both leaves and stems (yes, stems) turn a vibrant red in the fall.
