ONE OF the UK’s leading commercial nurseries has officially unveiled several new plants for 2019.
Wyevale Nurseries, which is a family owned wholesale grower in Hereford, has officially launched Ficinia ‘Ice Crystal’, Euonymus ‘White Spire’, Anisodontea ‘Elegans Princess’ and Raspberry ‘Yummy’.
Colin Stanley, Retail Sales Manager at Wyevale Nurseries, said: “We had a great reception about our new plants for 2019 from attendees at the Garden Press Event in February in London. It was great to listen to people talking about them and wanting to find out more.
“Ficinia ‘Ice Crystal’ is an unusual grass variety and has distinctive ‘frosted’ foliage giving the illusion of a crisp winters morning all year round. Plant in full sun and watch it flourish. The ultimate patio pot grass, sure to stand out in any garden or plant in clusters for maximum impact. It comes in a 2 litre pot and is available from August.
“Euonymus ‘White Spire’ is a brand new, upright variegated euonymus, which is perfect for low hedges or as specimens in pots. This wonderful new addition to the genus retains its colours all year round, is hardy to -15oc and can be grown in all soil types. A trial quantity will be available in July with a commercial quantity in 2020.
“Long lasting pink flowers and light green foliage makes Anisodontea ‘Elegans Princess’ a perennial must have. This plant grows well in pots or shaded borders and is an excellent replacement for the disease-prone Lavatera. Elegans Princess is a haven for bees and butterflies. It will come in a 3 litre pot and is available from July.”
Raspberry ‘Yummy’ is a new dwarf variety, remaining compact. It is different from other raspberries as it will bear fruit on the first year’s growth and will produce fruit all summer. Raspberry ‘Yummy’ is supplied in a striking five-litre red pot, ready to go straight on to the patio. It will be available in May.
The product selection available from Wyevale Nurseries is envied across the industry and the talented team regularly introduces new, award-winning plant varieties.
Its main business is to supply garden centres, landscape contractors, local authorities, foresters and landowners with a comprehensive array of trees, shrubs, hedging, herbaceous and specimen plants.
