Meanwhile Spreading Corona and Compact Hot Coral were awarded an RHS AGM.
In addition to the AGM award, visitors to the RHS Wisley Plant Trials garden voted for their favourite in the RHS People’s Choice Award.
Earley’s SunPatiens Spreading Salmon variegated leaf came first in the ‘Containers’ category, Compact Electric Orange came second and Spreading White variegated leaf took third place. SunPatiens Electric Orange came equal second in the ‘Borders’ category.
Earley Ornamentals managing director Simon Earley said: "We have been getting some great feedback from customers using SunPatiens for parks bedding so we already knew it was an exceptional performer.
"But with the HTA awards earlier this year, this additional independent endorsement cements our belief that SunPatiens are a serious contender for landscapers, growers and retailers in 2015. We expect to see a particular boost for the award winning colours."
RHS trials development manager Mark Heath said: "The SunPatiens trial proved very interesting and revealing about the performance of this product in the UK, in both garden border and patio container situations. We will be writing a full report during the winter months about the trial, which will be published and available on our trials website."
Earley grows 180m young plants, made up of 1,700 varieties, are grown each year at its 5ha site near Thirsk, North Yorkshire.
