Kernock Park Plants is introducing 50 new varieties to its catalogue for 2014, including the latest Calibrachoa in the Superbells collection, 'Pomegranate Punch'. It flowers from the beginning of summer to the end of October, and its crimson-red flowers diffuse to black in the centre, with strong yellow eyes.
The extra-large yellow flowers and upright habit of Bidens 'Rockstar' will also be on show, as well as two new varieties in the Digitalis Illumination series.
Digitalis Illumination 'Raspberry' and 'Apricot' have a longer flowering period, unique flower colours and a true perennial habit.
Meanwhile, double-flowered Primula Belarina 'Valentine' has a strong habit and dramatic, blood-red blooms that last through the whole of spring, while Lobularia 'Princess in Purple' (pictured) has flowers that smell of honey.
Kernock will also be introducing a set of three Kennedy Primroses - 'Avondale', 'Dunbeg' and 'Innisfree' - which have unusual purple-bronze foliage and are hardy to -15 degsC.
