Two New Varieties for Launch at Chelsea
Plants For Europe Limited (PFE) is working with Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants to launch two new varieties at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show which opens on Tuesday May 22nd.
Gaillardia Apricot Honey is a new perennial which flowers throughout summer. It produces many warm apricot coloured daisy flowers from May onwards. It has been bred by Rosy Hardy of Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants and makes an excellent plant for a border or large container in a sunny position.
Fourth in Wish Series of Salvia
Salvia Kisses and Wishes is the fourth in the Wish series of Salvia and has been developed by Sarah Knott of Southwater, West Sussex.
It flowers continuously from May until frost with bright warm pink flowers and makes an excellent container plant for a sunny patio or balcony. It is a companion for the existing varieties in the Wish series, Wendy’s Wish, Embers Wish and the award-winning Love and Wishes.
30 Years in the Industry
Graham Spencer, director of Plants For Europe said: “We are delighted to be working with Rosy Hardy and the Hardy’s team again at Chelsea – we have worked together over recent years on several successful launches, including Eryngium Neptune’s Gold, Geum Totally Tangerine and Nepeta Summer Magic.
This year is particularly special, as Rob and Rosy Hardy celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary and 30 years in the industry – to have a plant named Kisses and Wishes to launch seems very appropriate!”.
