Elvis was in the building at the Danziger CAST display in Gilroy, CA on Saturday. The surprise visit by the King of Rock and Roll kicked off the start of the Spring Trials event, highlighting the newest variety in the unique petunia series, Amore King of Hearts. Danziger’s North American team enlisted the King’s help as a surprise to customers and company executives. The night was filled with flowers and fun, including pictures on the red carpet, songs and dancing.
The event was a unique way to introduce a unique petunia series. The blooms of Amore Petunias each feature five distinct heart shapes, outlined in bright hues. For 2020, the series expands, adding three new varieties including King of Hearts, Fluttering Heart and Pink.
Amore King of Hearts features regal-red and white blooms. Five clear-red hearts are highlighted by bright white. King of Hearts flowers early, with a mounding habit and large blossoms that show good resistance to rain. The red color captures consumers' attention at retail.
Two other new varieties join the series in 2020. Amore Fluttering Heart boasts royal-purple hearts on a white backdrop. Amore Pink has lipstick-pink blooms outlined in clear white. Fluttering Heart and Pink are also early flowering with a mounding habit and great bloom power.
The three new Amore petunias join Queen of Hearts, Fiesta and Purple. Queen of Hearts features magenta hearts with a sunny-yellow backdrop. Fiesta has dark-Bordeaux, color-saturated hearts backed by bright yellow. The deep-purple hearts on Amore Purple are highlighted by white.
Amore fits well with any petunia program. The Amore series is well matched in flowering response. Quarts and 6-inch pots will finish in 13 weeks from stick. 10-inch and 12-inch containers with three or four plants per pot will also finish in 13 weeks from a URC. This series can also be finished for early season sales under high light conditions.
Amore is recommended for quarts, hanging baskets and unique combos.
