New this year is the Petchoa BeautiCal™, the new generation for the pot and patio! Petchoa ‘BeautiCal™’ has a more mounded habit than SuperCal® and larger flowers, making it the ideal choice for the pot and patio segment. BeautiCal™’s large, weather resistant plants recover from rain much faster than standard Petunias, and the exceptional colours will be an absolute WOW on retail benches. A combination of the best features of Petunia and Calibrachoa, BeautiCal™ is set to be the New Beauty Standard for patios, terraces and balconies. SunPatiens® grows in sun or shade, rain or shine, and provides unmatched colour in the garden for three seasons of the year. Easy to grow and unaffected by downy mildew, more and more growers are converting to SunPatiens® and watching their sales grow as a result.
