With over 100 new colours added to its range, leading independent UK producer and supplier of young plants, Earley Ornamentals has unveiled its highlights and heroes for the company’s 2017-18 collection - keeping its extensive range current. 

Unusual award-winning colourful and aromatic nemesia additions 

Two wonderfully fragrant, award-winning options for growers, retailers and garden designers have been added to the Earley Nemesia range - Aroma™ Rhubarb & Custard and Aroma™ Plums & Custard - both offering attractive, unusual bicolour combinations.

Another fragrant nemesia highlight is early flowering Nemesia Easter Bonnet, which had a very successful first year in the Earley portfolio. A profusion of bicolour blooms of light lemon yellow and soft pink are produced over plants of a compact and uniform habit.

Distinctive and scented, new colours Blue Rose and Yellow White have been added to the already popular Nemesia Sunpeddle® series introduced last year, which features Painted Rose, Red, White Perfume. Early flowering, Sunpeddle® offers a neat and compact habit.

New eye-catching petunias

Award-winning Chic Collection petunia
For a novel flower pattern, the award-winning Chic Collection petunia now features in the Earley Petunia range. With its star-shaped pattern and striking colour choices, early flowering Chic Collection offers a mounded habit and is ideal for impulse colour sales in large pots.
New additions to Petunia Tumbelina®
Offering layers of ruffled double blooms, the Petunia Tumbelina® series now includes the award-winning, stunning blue double, Maria. Other new additions to Tumbelina® include early variety, raspberry-veined Francesca, also an award winner, and fragrant Diana that produces an abundance of pristine white double blooms. 

Another fragrant highlight of Earley’s Tumbelina® collection is top selling Priscilla, an attractive blue-veined variety and the first colour in the series to be introduced. With a larger flower than other double trailing types this really is a resilient choice for baskets and pots.
F1 Espresso®
Also new is F1 Espresso®, a naturally dwarf multiflora petunia that has a low PGR requirement and excellent shelf life. Producing large flowers Espresso® is available in Blue, Pink, Red, White and a mix. It offers a non-stretching habit with good garden vigour and quick recovery from rain.
Inksplash added to Designer™

Another addition to the Designer™ series is the unusual variety Inksplash, which produces superb star patterned blue and white bicolour flowers.
