Danziger entered a partnership with Walters Gardens to become its licensee and producer of vegetative cuttings outside of North America. Danziger has previous successful production experience with Walters Gardens in North America.
“Creativity and collaboration are a hallmark of our business, and this exciting partnership showcases our commitment to those core values,” says Amir Dor, Director of sales at Danziger. “At the end of the day, we are here to serve our customers, and we are accommodating high demand for quality perennial plants. Together with Walters Gardens, today, we can deliver plant varieties that consumers want in their gardens.”
Danziger will produce a multitude of perennial varieties, many of which are exclusive. Trials will take place during 2022, targeting commercialization in 2023. Varieties include Phlox ‘Opening Act Ultrapink,’ Monarda ‘Leading Lady Razzberry,’ and Sedum ‘Tiramisu.’ Phlox ‘Opening Act Ultrapink’ blooms earlier than typical hybrid phlox, with a show of dark-green and glossy foliage that is mildew and disease resistant. It also holds up better in heat and humidity than other Phlox varieties. Ultrapink is the brightest, most vibrant color in the Opening Act Phlox Collection.
