While the star introduction from Suntory Flowers at the TPIE was a red hot mite-resistant mandevilla, Sun Parasol Mitebuster Red, two more intros include Sun Parasol Garden White in the bedding plant class and Sunrosa Yellow Delight in the compact shrub rose line.
Sun Parasol Mitebuster Red
Mitebuster Red is a compact, upright bush mandevilla that is naturally resistant to mites, a common problem that plagues mandevilla production in the nursery, at retail and for home owners. Mitebuster Red is also naturally resistant to leaf spot, another common problem.
Sun Parasol Garden White
Six years ago, Suntory introduced Sun Parasol Garden Crimson, their first bedding plant mandevilla bred for 4-inch pots. Plants have powerful branching with low breaks, making the Garden series very well suited to landscapes and hanging baskets. Now there is the new Garden White, a companion to Garden Crimson.
Sunrosa Yellow Delight
Dark yellows are hard to find, especially in roses. New Sunrosa Yellow Delight produces rich yellow blooms. Growers and retailers alike have appreciated this highly disease resistant compact shrub rose line. Sunrosa roses offer a long flowering period as well as exceptional heat tolerance. Plants are hardy to Zone 5.
