Visitors share top picks from CAST display

Visitors to Danziger's 2024 CAST display in Gilroy, California, chose their top picks for 2025, and their choices go beyond new colors, gravitating toward unique solutions for growers. At Danziger, years of research have led to new breeding work that is focused on the future. The company's new genetics are providing more options for growers, driving success both now and in the years ahead.

"Visitors to our CAST display told us growers are looking for solutions and better options," said Ori Danziger, Deputy CEO. "Our goal is to make growing top-quality plant material easier. Our 2025 introductions bring more novelties and the vibrant bloom colors everyone is looking for, paired with improved resilience, increased adaptability, and solutions growers need to thrive."

Here is a look at visitor favorites
For the past several years, Danziger's research and development team has focused on expanding its calibrachoa series. With the 2025 introductions, Danziger's calibrachoa line-up is deep, with extensive color options and series timed for consistent growth. There are five series to choose from, including the LIATM series, which is chosen for its well-branched, medium vigor habit and stunning performance in baskets. LIATM Abstract Lemon Cherry Calibrachoa (pictured above) turned heads at CAST with striking golden yellow flowers accented by a splash of cherry red. Stunning on its own, LIA Abstract Lemon Cherry is also an eye-catching addition to combinations.

Princess LIA and LIA Chili Pepper

Danziger petunia series are also showcasing the benefits of extensive research. New novelties were highlighted at CAST to rave reviews, not only for color choices but for consistent series growth and usage options. Danziger offers several petunia series, all with unique characteristics, simplifying the selection and growing process for customers. RAYTM Shadow was a standout at CAST with its large flowers that start out yellow and mature through hues of rose and purple. With its dramatic eye and color combinations, it will be a standout at retail.

Sol Luna Prime display

The adaptability and options provided by the new Sol Luna PrimeTM Hybrid Impatiens series garnered attention as well. This series is set to revolutionize the growing experience, offering a shorter finish time. Sol Luna Prime blooms up to seven days earlier and is a better option for varying growing conditions than traditional New Guinea Impatiens. It provides excellent uniformity across the colors, making it a great alternative to other series on the market. It also adapts to weather conditions, with outstanding wilting recovery at retail and for the home gardener. Available in six colors, Sol Luna Prime blooms and grows in both sun and shade.

Durabella display.

The creative combinations of Danziger's DurabellaTM program are always a main attraction at CAST. Visitors vote on new experimental combinations to be launched in 2026 and get to see their favorites from prior years in full bloom. More than 30 new recipes were showcased.

Floresta foliage

Visitors were also able to see the high-quality cuttings available from Danziger's FlorestaTM foliage program. Indoor production at the company's facility in Guatemala provides growers with a consistent and reliable supply of superior foliage unrooted cuttings.

This year's event was blessed with beautiful weather that allowed all the new and improved varieties to shine. "With on-trend genetics that offer more color, increased adaptability, and dependable performance, Danziger's global team is more than excited for the 2025 season."
