Northeast Region

John Steinlage, Regional Business Manager for Northeast and Great Lakes, recommends Beacon Impatiens. He says, “I am excited about the Beacon Impatiens! The innovation and work that went into breeding back a class that was highly impacted by Impatiens Downy Mildew. It’s a great item for the shade and landscape and will continue to grow in years to come as PanAmerican Seed introduces more colors and mixes.”

Midwest Region

Tom Seery, Regional Business Manager for the Midwest, recommends the latest lantana. He says, “PassionFruit Lantana. I like this plant because it is a pollinator and is drought resistant. The color is striking, habit is unique and garden performance is unparalleled.”

Pacific Northwest Region

Jose Sanchez, Regional Business Manager for the Pacific Northwest, is also a fan of Passion Fruit. “The Lantana PassionFruit is a great new item for our region. It is very versatile for us, as it can be utilized in the landscape, baskets and containers. There is an extended season in some parts of our region. And it is still blooming in my garden. The color and habit are very unique,” he says.


Nancy Boekestyn, Canadian Business Manager, admitted that although she couldn’t just pick one plant for the entire country, she did have a top recommendation of her own. She says, “The climbing Mandevilla has been a personal favorite for decades. The flower power, height, heat tolerance and tropical vibes make it a winner on my patio every year.”
