New World Plants

Where the future is growing

We offer a professional service introducing new plant hybrids to the trade that are sourced from both amateur and professional breeders from around the world as well as our own breeding programme. We are passionate about discovering new hybrids that we feel have definite commercial worth in garden centres and retail nurseries.

New World plants has been generating new varieties for sale for a number of years and as a result has built up a reliable network of breeders and partner growers around the world and has a great deal of experience in importing and exporting plant material. In addition, we work closely with our suppliers of young plant material and can provide you with a choice of suitable options for successful production.

WHAT'S NEW FOR 2020

A quick overview of our new varieties

PLANT CATEGORIES

World class ... New World Plants has something for everyone, start the next season by looking at the wide range of plants we offer to add inspiration, let the New World Plants begin !

Agapanthus Silver Lining

Agapanthus

This group of plants are highly irresistible and becoming increasing popular but also a high value plant for sales. NWP has been making numerous selections from its own breeding and more recently working with other breeders to provide an even more exciting range for the future. We have a number of new hybrids in tissue culture which we hope to release in the next few years so please re visit this site to see the new additions!

Dahlias

Delightfully decorative in floral arrangements but equally so in the border or planter. There are numerous hybrids in the market some of which are ‘look-a-likes’ in our opinion, however we have been careful to offer distinct hybrids that are sure to make an impression with either their vibrant flower or foliage colour.

Dahlia Rhubarb and Custard

Erysimum Tropical Sunset

Erysimum

A favourite plant by many gardeners but NWP has been careful to make selections that are garden worthy and grow well in pots. These new more compact hybrids are a great improvement on the types traditionally offered in the trade which are not long lasting in our opinion. In recent years we have made available favourites such as ‘Paint Box’, as well as the new ‘Sky Series’, these consist of a delightful mix of pastel colours. It’s worth noting that we have more exciting hybrids in the pipe line!

Hellebores

We have been secretly working hard over the past seven years in hybridising and selecting a range of Hellebores that are very different to what is being offered commercially. There are plenty of modern hybrids that have a great deal of similarity but our aim is to bring a selection of unique colour forms and in particular a range of ‘anemone centered’ hybrids that cannot be replicated by seed; these hybrids are truly breath-taking with a central ruff of small petals that stand out from the crowd. Watch this space for the new impressive forms about to arrive!

Helleborus nigra Snow Angels

Geum Pink Petticoats

Perennials

Over the decades NWP has been responsible for discovering a wide range of new garden plants including some sub-shrubs, grasses including Festuca ‘Elijah Blue’ and many new perennial plants, such as Dicentra ‘Gold Heart’, Lysimachia ‘Fire Cracker’, Polemonium ‘Heaven Scent’ to name but a few. In recent years we have made available an interesting range of Bergenia, Hesperantha and more currently Geum ‘Pink Petticoats’. Our aim is to continue to offer garden worthy hybrids and are actively trialling Crocosmia, hybridising Lupins as well as one off unusual, or unique perennials. We have a keen eye for the unusual and this is where you would find them!

Salvias

This group of plants is undoubtedly one of the world’s most popular and fascinating genera, Salvia ‘Amistad’ being the best-selling favourite that we have exclusively introduced! Every year we offer a selection of new hybrids that are often an improvement on older varieties or totally different than what has been seen before. It’s important that we provide a range of colours that have instant appeal to the consumer but also plants that grow well in commerce. In our ever-growing collection there are lots of nice garden plants but often they don't lend themselves to container production and so are subsequently taken out. Keep an eye here for new releases as we are not short of new varieties yet!

Iberis ‘Masterpiece’

Introduced 2010

From our own hybridising without any doubt an all-time winner with over 3.5 million plant sales ! Should not be treated like an alpine. Splendid for planters as well as borders. The massive flowers continue for such a long season.

Introduced 2010

A delightful and very reliable perennial which seems to be resistant to mildew with wonderful dark foliage when it first emerges. Numerous purple-blue flowers with a light fragrance, takes a lot more sun than other varieties.

Salvia ‘Amistad’

Salvia ‘Amistad’

Introduced 2011

A sterile variety that stormed the world as an outstanding Salvia! It responds to pinching and growth regulators (in moderation) to produce a good flowering plant in a pot. Responds to repeat flowering after further pruning and flowers for a long season.

Santolina ‘Lemon Fizz’

Introduced 2009

A wonderful discovery of ours which has become a standard plant for use in autumn / winter patio arrangements. Evergreen with bright golden / yellow foliage and lemon button flowers in summer. Occasional green shoots need removing to prevent reversion.
