Wyevale nurseries has put together a selection of new plants this month to follow the predicted trends.
Wyevale Nurseries says bold colours look set to be key for 2019. Its new plants in 2019 include Agapanthus ‘Fireworks’ and Cordyline ‘Electric Pink’.
Kyle Ross, production manager, explained: “This range of new plants showcases some of our boldest and brightest on the nursery. These are a handful of our new crops for 2019. We have a large range available right from the start of the year through to early autumn.”
Agapanthus ‘Fireworks’ is an explosion of colour, deep purple merging into pure white blooms. It won the coveted Glee Best New Plant Award 2018. The deep purple and snow-white flowers will make an ideal combination for pots or borders.

To go side-by-side with Fireworks is the new Ever Series. Comprising of two new additions, ‘Ever White’ and ‘Ever Sapphire’. Agapanthus ‘Fireworks’ and the Ever Series are available in a two-litre pot in May/June.
Kyle added: “The Cordyline Electric Series includes three distinct plants, which will look wonderful on a bed end. All three are good growers, drought resistant and are the embodiment of low maintenance.
“Electric Pink’ is an ideal standalone plant with masses of shocking pink foliage, perfect for impulse sales. Cordyline Electric Series are available in a three-litre pot in May.”
Penstemon ‘Purple Perfection’ has compact silvery-green foliage coupled with rich, super-sized purple blooms. It’s ideal for pots and borders and will be available in a two-litre pot in June.
Raspberry ‘Yummy’ is a new dwarf variety, remaining compact. It’s different from other raspberries; it will bear fruit on first year growth and will fruit all summer. Raspberry ‘Yummy’ is in a striking red pot, ready to go straight on to the patio. It is available in May in a five-litre pot.
Kyle added: “Geum ‘Pink Petticoats’ has masses of semi-double, ruffled coral pink blooms which will catch the eye. It’s more floriferous than other Geums and longer lasting too. It is low growing and ideal for an herbaceous border or bed end offer. Available in April in a two-litre pot.
“From Hellebores to Phormiums and plenty between. We have a fantastic selection looking excellent for retailers.”
