Gardening Express secured exclusivity from the breeder for the variety in the Spring in advance of the unveiling. Van Oploo Tuinplanten BV (Netherlands) deveoped the plant, which was introduced at Plantarium by Plantipp.
Other additions to the range include Hibiscus ‘Sugar Tip’ from the USA.
Ceanothus ‘Cool Blue', is another gold medal winning variety added to the range, originally discovered in the Netherlands as a chance variation on a shoot of Ceanothus Victoria growing in commercial nursery, Huisman Boomkwekerij of Boskoop.
Gardening Express founder Chris Bonnett said: "I know a winner when we see one. We know what works, and when, and even if a variety is not received as warmly as expected, we know how to sell."
Bonnett added: "We will also be launching our new look website before the end of 2015."
