Canada Blooms chooses Garvinia Sweet as plant of the year

Canada Blooms announces that it has chosen the ‘Garvinea Sweet’ series of gerberas as its 2016 plant of the year. Gerberas are now available in the outdoors friendly ‘Garvinea Sweet’ series from Florist Holland, especially suited for outdoor use in both containers and the gardens.



Intensive plant breeding, interspecific hybridization and tissue culture propagation have combined to make the ‘Garvinea Sweets’ a reliable garden performer in the spring, summer and fall with increased disease tolerance, cold tolerance and an excellent re-bloom habit.

Proven locally at the University of Guelph trial garden program during the 2014 and 2015 growing seasons, ‘Garvinea Sweets’ were grown in containers at 2 different sites as well as in 3 different ground bed sites under a wide range of watering and fertilizer regimes. As long as the soil was well-drained, these plants thrived and bloomed continuously from planting time until winter arrived. The flower stem length on the Garvinea is long enough to allow use as a cut flower in the home.

The ‘Garvinea Sweets’ can be bought at Canada Blooms in March 2016. The following ‘Garvinea Sweet’ selections will be available for purchase at Canada Blooms: Sweet Glow (orange), Sweet Heart (pink), Sweet Honey (golden yellow), Sweet Smile (yellow), and Sweet Surprise (pink-violet).
