"The new pelargonium series Santana withstands extreme weather and features a broad color palette"

Pelargoniums are as much a part of bedding and container gardening as the sun is of the summer. But this is not the only reason why the new Santana series from Dümmen Orange is an absolute must this season. The seven varieties in the interspecific Pelargonium series also bring a fresh, game-changing boost to the range, including greatly improved heat tolerance compared with traditional zonal geraniums.

Outstanding garden performance
Pelargoniums are already known to be relatively robust, long-flowering plants. But the Santana series elevates these characteristics to a whole new level. The Santana varieties are all highly weather resistant and perform exceptionally well in the garden under varying conditions. They are significantly more heat tolerant than standard varieties and can withstand periods of drought – and even heavy rainfall – with ease. Since they basically require less water too, they sit very well with the trend and demand for robust, water-saving plants for bedding and container gardening.

Seven attractive varieties
The broad color palette of the seven Santana varieties covers all the primary colors, so there's something to suit every producer and end customer: various red shades as well as white and two-tone options. The pure white Santana White, hot pink Santana Pink, and the wonderful lilac Santana Purple are a delight. The fiery red Santana Fire and deep red Santana Red cover the traditional red shades, while the bicolor Santana White Splash (white with pink splashes) and Santana Red Splash (pink with red splashes) bring a charming touch of playfulness to the series.

Perfectly matched
Producers will particularly appreciate the well-matched growth habit and earliness of this new series. This allows you to optimally plan cultivation and marketing to ensure a reliable supply of high-quality, uniform Pelargonium for retailers and end customers. Whether at the point of sale or with the consumer – the attractive new series is certainly eye-catching. Available in a choice of seven colors, the profusion of large flowers with round petals contrasts beautifully with the dark green foliage. Producing an abundance of long-lasting, lavish flowers, these plants are guaranteed to make a stunning display in pots, containers, and hanging baskets – and are equally at home in traditional or more sophisticated planting schemes. And since all seven varieties are interspecific Pelargonium, they have a semi spreading habit which promises plenty of volume and a profusion of flowers. This makes Santana an excellent bedding plant too!

Game-changing characteristics
The product managers at Dümmen Orange predict a great future for the new series. No wonder, since the characteristics of Santana are so compelling: an interspecific Pelargonium with low water requirement, remarkable heat tolerance, very good weather stability, and outstanding garden performance, since the single varieties have been selected mainly for greater durability and resilience. So you can delight in the loveliness of the plants and feel good about the environment at the same time. And that’s from spring right through to October, and we don’t just mean the customers!
