Ball Summer Showcase Results!

As always, the Ball Summer Showcase offers visitors the opportunity to vote for their favourite Annual and Perennial varieties from any of the trials or plant displays.

The four week period of trade visitors ended on August 4th and coincided with the record high heatwave!

Great Testament

“Not an ideal year to launch a new series of Double Busy Lizzies!” said Stuart Lowen, Marketing Manager Ball. “This is, however, great testament to the incredible breeding work carried out by our sister company, Ball FloraPlant.

Glimmer™ Impatiens

The all-new Downy Mildew resistant Glimmer™ Impatiens simply stole the show. “Through heat and sun, the robust plants and rose-like blossoms of Glimmer just battled on to give a non-stop display of colour. This is just what we want from new plant varieties!” 

Just the Bee's Knees!

Already recognised internationally as the Winner of the 2022/23 Fleursotar Award, its no surprise Bee's Knees, with its super intense Bee's Knees sunshine yellow flowers, was also chosen as a favourite by our visitors at this year’s Summer Showcase. 

Versatile Petunia

This plant is strongly branched to provide a versatile Petunia with a mounding, spilling habit which looks as great in the garden border as it does in baskets and containers. 

Bee’s Knees has amazing garden longevity, unlike other yellows. An excellent plant for premium mixed plant combinations with a height of 20-25cm and spread of 41-56cm.
