The J. Berry team didn’t have to take a plane home from Ohio to Texas. That's because, in their words, they were floating on air after a double win for the Summer Spice Hardy Hibiscus at Cultivate18.
Young Plants Division debut
The company also formally announced the debut of its new Young Plants Division at Cultivate18. Attendees were able to meet Dr. Judson LeCompte, who will lead this new J. Berry venture.
The Young Plants Division will offer liners of brands including Black Diamond and Emerald Empire Crapemyrtles, Déjà Bloom Azaleas, Summer Spice Hardy Hibiscus, Cabana Cannas, Crown Jewel Begonias as well as J. Berry Premium Shrubs. Plants are offered in 50 count trays and large 15 count "Moneymakers" for a fast turn.
J. Berry Shines in Ohio
Besides winning awards and announcing its Young Plants division, the J. Berry booth had a glam new look. They debuted the Crown Jewel Begonias with a fun giveaway ring and cufflink "bling" and awarded an elite network of licensees, container and tag suppliers, strategic broker and retail partners and prestigious supportive organizations of their Hollywood Hibiscus and Black Diamond brands with their version of an Oscar and Emmy.
The company's plants are being recognized not only in the US but also globally. The Pink Ribbons Déjà Bloom Azalea won the 2018 World Garden Show Ornamental Plant Exhibit Award in China.
