Its main genetic work has centred around pelargoniums, but for 2013-14 it will introduce its first variety of Laurentia. Laurentia pac 'Shooting Star Blue', which is early flowering, long flowering and floriferous, will be exhibited at Four Oaks Trade Show next month.
New introductions from Elsner's pelargonium breeding include Pac Candy Flowers White, a pure white-flowered variety of the Pac Candy Flowers interspecific hybrid series.
New ivy leaf pelargoniums include Pac Mary, which has semi-double merlot-red flowers, and Pac Sally, which has deep velvet-red semi-double flowers. Pac Happy Face Purple Red Improved is the new single flowered introduction.
At Four Oaks, Elsner will also display new varieties from Westhoff.
