I think it gets between 9-11 inches tall, including the blooms!

I like that one too. It seems plants from Darwin take longer to hit the market. The only place that seems to get them is Sugar Creek in St. Louis and they do not do mail order.

I really don't understand the Darwin not getting more widely distributed. They are sold through Ball Hort, which is a huge distributor. The plants I got from them were very nice for starter plants. If you go on the Darwin website, you can see a lot of their intros, which are really nice. Or on the Ball Hort website you can look at the whole Darwin catalogue.

If you know of a nursery that grows perennials from plugs or bare root, not one that just receives finished products, why not ask them to grow some of the Darwins.

We do have a nursery here in Kansas that carries Darwin products. They had some serious problems with crop failures on new echinacea this year. also on the orange buddlieas, but not sure that was a Darwin deal. It wasn't just that the nursery wasn't getting the plugs, but some of the plugs just wouldn't grow right. These nursery owners are some of the very best growers, too.

I've never tried their plugs, so I can't comment on them. The only ones I've grown so far are the bare root, but I plan on ordering plugs. You need to order now to get them next spring. They're held in the Netherlands, and then sent to Illinois, where they are kept frozen and shipped to various growers. It's definitely different than working with say, Walters Gardens.

How disappointed that nursery must have been, Cindi!

Polly, that nursery is in the middle of nowhere, 90 miles from anywhere, so I'll bet they get real tired of listening to customers who drove that far to get the latest greatest...only to find them Not Available.
I took a client there in early April and she bought all the decent ones they had. She spent close to 5 grand that day..... Whistling

They do, because I let my client pay them full price instead of me buying everything at my wholesale price. Sticking tongue out

According to Facebook — New Licensing Agreement with Blooms of Bressingham

Included in the collaboration is a new collection called the Echinacea Supreme™ Series, which features ‘Supreme Cantaloupe’, ‘Supreme Elegance’ and ‘Supreme Flamingo’. The licensing agreement also includes Heucherella ‘Cracked Ice’ and Heucherella ‘Buttered Rum’.

Terra Nova Nurseries will exclusively grow and sell the new varieties for the first year of the program. Blooms of Bressingham’s licensed propagators will build supply in anticipation of increased demand for year two. The agreement terms also include a plan to introduce and supply the varieties to growers in Europe and Japan during the second year.

Growers and retailers will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the varieties on display for the first time in the New Varieties Display at OFA, July 14-17. They will also be exhibited in our company’s exhibit booth and Blooms of Bressingham’s Market Partners’ booths. The first order shipment will be available later this month through Terra Nova Nurseries.
