AAS Board Announces Fifth Winner for ’12
At the All-America Selections board of directors’ annual winter meeting, the board approved another trial entry as an exclusive AAS Winner for 2012 – the new winner is the ‘Jams ‘N Jellies Blackberry’ vinca.
Bred by Kirin Agribio/PanAm Seed Co., the novel color drew many positive comments from both judges and trial visitors.
The velvety deep-purple flowers are an excellent accent plant and work well in combination with other flowers that are powder blue, bright pink, white and/or lavender.
Mature plants are 12- to 16-inches tall making them perfect as a medium height divider. The 1½ to 2 inch dark purple flowers are offset by shiny, deep green foliage creating a striking color combination.
As with all AAS Winners, this new, never-before-sold entry was trialed by AAS trial judges who are trained and experienced horticulture professionals.
This newest AAS Winner is available for immediate sale. Commercial growers should inquire with their seed suppliers. AAS Winner tags are available from supporting tag suppliers.
Consumers will find these seeds as supply becomes available in the coming months with catalog companies, in seed packets, from mail order companies and various websites.
AAS Winners will also be available as young plants in lawn & garden retail stores this coming spring.
