Terra Nova Announces Two New Introductions
Terra Nova Nurseries has announced two new 2013 “Sneak Peek” introductions now available to growers – Heuchera ‘Glitter’ and a begonia series called Begonia Garden Angels.
Heuchera ‘Glitter’ has mirror-bright silver foliage and contrasting black veins. This variety produces bouquet-type, exotic fuchsia-pink flowers during the summer months. IHeuchera ‘Glitter’ has a clean habit, making it easy to grow and maintain. For optimal performance, ‘Glitter’ requires sun to shade exposure and well-drained, organic soil.
The Begonia Garden Angels series includes three varieties, Begonia ‘Garden Angel Blush’, ‘Garden Angel Plum’ and ‘Garden Angel Silver’. As a whole, the series is bred to withstand cold weather; hardy in zone 7; and easy-to-grow. Each of the varieties in the series has metallic leaves, giving the plants an exotic appearance.
Begonia ‘Garden Angel Blush’ produces pewter-silver palmate leaves with coal-black veins and a warm, rich violet blush, while Begonia ‘Garden Angel Silver’ has shiny silver, maple-like leaves with mint-green veins. Begonia ‘Garden Angel Plum’ has plum-red-violet foliage and is the largest of the three Garden Angels™.
