New plant competition is at the core of one of the largest green industry shows in North America each July. Cultivate ‘17 was busy as ever and full of amazing new variety releases from the top brands and programs each vying for attention from industry eyes.
Among dozens of new varieties displayed in the showcase at Cultivate this year, sixteen Retailer’s Choice Awards were handed out to those that made the grade. We’re honored and proud that our Lavalamp™ Series of Hydrangeas were some of the chosen few.
Three unique, new and improved Hydrangea paniculatas comprise the Lavalamp™ Series. Candelabra™, Flare™, and Moonrock™ offer unique colors as well as tidy, compact forms to better suit modern outdoor spaces.
