This improved variety features a deeper, more intense purple colour than original Purple, with earlier flowering and improved production. Plus, Angelonia Serena® Purple Improved has a plant habit, vigour and height that better fit the series. The Serena series currently includes White, Blue, Purple Improved, Rose and two mixes.
This new variety in the Serenita series offers a true lavender flower colour. It is one week earlier to flower compared to Lavender Pink, with fast secondary flowering and good fill.
Serena and companion Serenita are the only seed angelonias on the market, providing premium results you expect from vegetative varieties, with less labour and more efficiency. Both fit into warm bedding production, are perfect for grower choice premium containers and excel in landscapes, thanks to their high durability.
Flowering two weeks earlier than its competitors, the Quicktime series is screened and selected for reduced day length sensitivity and allows you to sow your viola crop two weeks later and still ship in time for Spring. The series features ‘Hyperflora’ flowering powers, so it has multiple blooms at first flower and continues with fast secondary and tertiary flowering. The plants build a strong body to fill out the pot or pack.
PanAmerican Seed now introduces one new Quicktime variety: Viola Quicktime Blue, which adds a beautiful, key core colour to the series. The series currently includes seven colours.
A unique plant for the border, which produces silvery-white, felted leaves plus lavender flowers in July, with rosy-lavender bracts and a pleasant sage fragrance. Salvia Lancelot is a water-wise plant and a great pollinator, attracting bees and butterflies.

Plus, they bloom early and produce high-quality plants. With its sturdy, maintenance-free growing habit, the Starship series provides an attractive, bushy and columnar appearance.
This series currently includes Scarlet, Deep Rose, Burgundy, Blue and Scarlet Bronze Leaf.
