Dianthus to be launched to the public at Hampton Court

Visitors to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (9-14 July) will be able to buy the new Dianthus (Malmaison) cultivar in the Plant Heritage marquee.
Suffolk based National Collection Holder of Dianthus (Malmaison), Jim Marshall, will be launching the new cultivar  ‘James Muir’ in the Plant Heritage marquee on 8 July when he will present a bouquet to the Countess of Wessex.
Marshall, who won a gold medal and best in marquee when he last displayed at Hampton Court in 2011 is making a return this year with a display that will depict an Edwardian florist shop.
He said: "It is a superb addition to my Collection as it’s a stronger pink than most of the other cultivars."

The Cultivar ‘James Muir’ has been named after Jim’s grandfather who lived in Edinburgh at a time when Malmaisons were very popular in Scotland. The Plant Heritage marquee, PH1 will be found in the Grow Zone next to the Floral Marquee.
