Wyevale Nurseries Scoop Two Awards
Wyevale Nurseries are celebrating after two of their new plants scooped both Gold and Silver awards at the recent HTA National Plant Show.
Wyevale Nurseries entered Agapanthus ‘Poppin Purple’ and Salvia ‘Amante’ into the New Plant Awards and were delighted they scooped a Gold and Silver award respectively.
Stunning New Plants
Andy Johnson, M.D. of Wyevale Nurseries said “We’re delighted we were awarded a Gold and Silver award for these two stunning new plants. They really are outstanding and it’s great that the judges seemed to think so too!
Agapanthus ‘Poppin Purple’ (above) is a brand-new, evergreen agapanthus, which has metallic purple buds that open into dark purple flowers on compact stems. It reaches 60cm tall and is ideal for containers.
Salvia ‘Amante’ (above) is a breeding breakthrough from the same stable as ‘Amistad’.
This red-flowered Salvia guaranitica shares the same attributes with Amistad, such as having a taller growing form with an extremely impressive display of long stem tubular flowers throughout the summer into autumn. It is also drought resistant and perfect for borders.
