Summer 2017 has been good to our collection, with another award given to our exclusive new varieties. This time, Firefly™ Nightglow™ Diervilla took a coveted Gold Medal at Plantarium, a plant innovations expo held annually in Boskoop, Netherlands.
We’re very proud of this award. The judging at this prestigious event is extremely competitive. The new variety submitted must possess clear improvements and unique qualities – Nightglow certainly meets this criteria.
Our only other variety to take a Plantarium Gold is Tilt-A-Swirl® Hydrangea, and last year Tuxedo™ Weigela was awarded Silver. Our selection process for Bloomin’ Easy varieties is quite strict, and the awards highlight our strive to bring only truly unique and improved plants into the line.
What makes Nightglow™ so special?
- Rich red foliage from first flush to frost in full sun
- Vibrant yellow flowers clusters contrast sharply
- Compact at 2-3′ tall and wide; fountain form
- Zone 4 (-34°C/ -30°F) cold hardy
Nightglow has everything we desire in a plant; it’s strikingly beautiful, compact to fit almost any space, and resilient so it doesn’t require lots of maintenance to thrive. We’re confident you’ll love this new Diervilla as much as we do. It’s as easy as finding a sunny spot in your yard, then plant, water, and relax.
Relax, you’ve got this!
