4 Min Read

After several ‘successful’ years, including wins for Semponium Destiny (2022) and Agapanthus BlackJack (2023) as Plant of the Year, Plantipp has ten entries ready for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year. These entries are presented by Hayloft, T&M, Hillier and Kernock Park Plants.

The Plantipp team says: “Clematis Guernsey Flute (‘EviGsy153’PBR) from Clematis breeder Raymond J. Evison stands out with large, star-shaped, pure white flowers up to approx. 14 cm in diameter and striking red stamens. Agastache Beelicious Pink (‘Agapk’PBR) is praised as possibly the most impressive Agastache on the market. With large, pink flower spikes, a compact habit, abundant flowering and a long flowering period, it provides extra-long enjoyment.

The Trachelospermum asiaticum Star of Milano® (‘TRSUZ01’) catches the eye with dark green and creamy white, glossy leaves. Star of Milano blooms with pink, fragrant flowers for an extra-long flowering period from May to September. The new, compact, city-friendly Philadelphus Petite Perfume series has been welcomed with open arms. Philadelphus Petite Perfume White (‘W1’PBR) blooms for six weeks during the summer with hundreds of sweet-scented flowers attracting bees and butterflies from far and wide to the landscape.”

The goals of flower strength and climate resistance
They add: “Flowering strength and climate resistance are paramount. After the success of the Delosperma Ocean Sunset, Sun Diamonds, Wheels of Wonder® and Jewel of Desert series, Koichiro Nishikawa is ready to bring the next series to the market. The new Delosperma Desert Dancers Red (‘FSDD2112’PBR) and Purple (‘FSDD2117’PBR) stand out from the current range with their intense dark red foliage that increases the visual appeal of the landscape even without flowers.”

“The new Papaver orientale Red Rumble (‘HG01’PBR) is loved for its reliable garden performance that keeps coming back year after year with its strong flower stems, large bright red flowers, and compact growth habit. Another top performer for the landscape is the beloved Sempervivum Chick Charms® Giants, now including the Chick Charms Giants Gold Mine (‘GGM2022’), which can be admired in person at the Chelsea Flower Show,”they continue.
