From annuals that look like they came out of a Dr. Seuss book to breeding marvels in perennials and shrubs, the visits to Danziger and Proven Winners at California Spring Trials were exciting, to be sure. Here are some of my favorites.
Erysimum (wall flower) ‘Sunstrong Bicolor Purple’
The wall flowers definitely have a place in the market, and the last five years or so has seen a major upswing in breeding interest: The Poems, the Winters, and the Sugar Rush series to name but a few. However, I am pleased to show off Danziger’s new wall flower as a better replacement for the Bowles Mauve type of wall flowers. The plants are robust and floriferous and bring lilac-purple back to the genus. I look forward to seeing this plant as more than a novelty item.
