3 Min Read

Terra Nova Nurseries commemorates the company’s popular “Nova” Series with a sneak peek of Coreopsis Nova® ‘Sunstone’ and best performer Scabiosa Nova® ‘Dew Drops’. The new coreopsis features an abundance of flowers that transition from a rusty peach to sun-tanned pink. The unique scabiosa is known for its delicate, lavender flowers.

“Coreopsis Nova ‘Sunstone’ has a fast and mounding growth habit, and it blooms June through October. The new coreopsis is a beautiful accent plant and presents robust landscape value in mixed beds, borders, containers and mass plantings. NOVA ‘Sunstone’ is deer-resistant and a powerful pollinator attractor. This coreopsis variety prefers full sun and average, well-drained soil.”

“Finishing growers should allow this variety to dry moderately between waterings for greenhouse growing. The finish time from a liner to a 4-inch pot is four to six weeks. Finish time from a liner to a 1-gallon pot is six to eight weeks. NOVA ‘Sunstone’ grows vigorously in the spring, reaching a height of 14″, width of 30″ and flower height of 16″. USDA Hardiness Zones for this variety are 5-10.”

According to Terra Nova Nurseries, Scabiosa Nova ‘Dew Drops’ features all-new breeding in scabiosa and grows fast with a mounding habit. “NOVA ‘Dew Drops’ is a tremendous addition to mixed beds, borders and containers, and is most active in the spring, blooming May through September. This variety prefers full sun, requires very well-drained soil, and attracts pollinators with its large volume of flowers. It also makes for a nice cut flower.”

“The finish time from a liner to a 4-inch pot for Nova ‘Dew Drops’ is six to eight weeks. Finishing growers should allow this variety to dry moderately between waterings in the greenhouse. This variety will reach a height of 6″, width of 14″ and flower height of 12″. USDA Hardiness Zones are 4-9.”
