The original yellow Power Daisy was a runner up in RHS Chelsea plant of the year in 2016.

Kerley summer trials will be open from week 32 until week 35.

There will be nearly 1000 different Petunia experimentals to see. An indoor summer trial of the latest Petunia seedlings (500+) plus 400+ containers of Petunia with 2018 introductions and potential 2019 introductions undergoing weather testing with some industry comparisons will feature.  

"There are 80 containers of other crops in our outdoor trial area, including the new Power Daisy 'Sunny', the 2018 introduction 'Power Daisy Tango' and several other experimental Power Daisies", Kerley said.  

Outdoor trials of Begonias include the new fragrant 'Bounty' - a very prolific flowering plant and good producer of cuttings.

Other crops on display will include Felicia and Helichrysum petiolare.
