On The Road: Proven Winners

Lobularia Snow PrincessJenny Andrews reports from the OFA Short Course in Dayton, Ohio: "Danielle Ernest, John Gados and Jane Beggs-Joles walked Petunia Pretty Much Picassome through the newest creations from Proven Winners, including Lobularia ‘Snow Princess’, a super-vigorous alyssum that forms a cloud of tiny white blooms which John calls their big “ta-daah” plant for this year [see photo at far left], and the dramatic Petunia ‘Pretty Much Picasso’ [near left] with deep pink centers and bright green edges. The petunia coloring is a dramatic first, and it makes an amazing mound of mid-sized flowers. Both the alyssum and petunia were filling their containers and spilling over the edges in a spectacular display. There was a constant buzz of activity around these plants."
