The Home of Proven Winners® Perennials

Walters Gardens has been producing and supplying perennial plants throughout North America since 1946; specializing in starter material, both plug

liners and field grown bare root.

In the early days of the company, Walters Gardens grew a reputation for sourcing new and unique genetics from Europe. With the addition of a Tissue

Culture Lab in 1976, lab managers and technicians began identifying sports with positive characteristics and introducing these plants alongside other

more traditional hybrids. Today, the New Plant Development Department, headed by Hans Hansen, works with more than 70 genera. The department

works on goal-oriented plant development programs, aimed at identifying varieties with improved performance for both home and commercial

landscapes. Out of the hundreds of introductions this program has identified and brought to market, only the very best are selected for Proven Winners

Perennials.

There are now almost 200 perennials in the Proven Winners® program that have been trialed, tested, and introduced through Walters Gardens. The fruits

of the partnership between Walters Gardens and Proven Winners can be seen in the growth of the Perennial program and the continued support of our

customers who keep coming back for more.

Performance in the landscape is

the reason these perennials have

been chosen for Proven Winners®.

Consumers trust Proven Winners®

because the product is proven.

The Proven Package

Building Sales on Brand Awareness

We believe in the power of the Proven Package and all of the research that stands behind it. Perennials sold in Proven Winners branded containers sell

more plants with brand awareness and consumer success. Our customers are showing us every year with their repeat orders and order increases that

Proven Winners Perennials are some of their top sellers.

The Proven Package is essential for brand awareness—consumers know to look for the white Proven Winners branded container when they shop.

That is why the white Proven Winners branded container and label are required for all Proven Winners Perennials. Benchcards are optional, but highly

recommended, for retailers. Visit www.provenwinners.com/perennial-benchcards

Proven Winners® Stake Labels

All of the Proven Winners Perennials are sold with the Proven Winners stake label shown here. They are 7.25” tall and 2.25” wide, feature easy to read

information, and a QR code which provides additional images, growing tips, features and awards. The cost of this label is included in the Variety License

Fee amount for each plant.

Proven Winners® Perennials

National

Plants of the Year ®

While each Proven Winners plant is exceptional in its own way, only the very best can do so under national attention. The National Perennial of the

Year® and National Hosta of the Year® programs seek to highlight a pair of perennials that represent the very best of the best. These plants were

selected for their ease of care and far reaching excellence that can be enjoyed by many.

The National Plant of the Year® program includes more than a perennial and a hosta each year. The program stretches across annuals and shrubs

as well. While each plant is chosen based on independent merit, their quality and versatility usually make them beautiful companion plants to each

other. To view this year’s National Plant of the Year® collection, visit www.nationalplantoftheyear.com

Proven Winners® Perennials

Frost to Frost

PERENNIAL PROGRAM BUILDER

Plan for Frost to Frost Color

A little planning goes a long way. Build stunning endcaps by choosing ahead of time what perennials you will be featuring throughout

the year. Sequencing a different set of perennials to show color in each of the four core seasons will ensure the high value areas of your

garden center are always looking nice, and keep things fresh for returning visitors.

Sales Window Key

Early Spring (Weeks 15-22) Late Spring (Weeks 23-27) Early Summer (Weeks 28-33) Late Summer (Weeks 34-38)

Multi Season (Fabulous Foliage, Weeks 19-38)

Multi Season (Trim & Rebloom, Weeks 19-38)

Early Spring (Weeks 15-22) - These plants bloom from April - May and tend to be on the early end of the Spring rush. Perennials in this

category include Dianthus and spring blooming types of Phlox.

Late Spring (Weeks 23-27) - June is perennial month, and that is when you will usually find these plants in flower. With forcing these

plants may be ready in May. Perennials in this category include Baptisia and Monarda.

Early Summer (Weeks 28-33) - Spanning July to mid August. Plants in this category include Heliopsis, Hibiscus, and Echinacea.

Late Summer (Weeks 34-38) -These plants are among the slowest plants to mature, coming into flower in mid August to September.

Japanese Anemones are a good example of this type of perennial.

Multi Season - Fabulous Foliage (Weeks 19-38) - These plants are grown primarily for their foliage and so look good all summer long. Use

these plants to fill in a gap between flowering nursery stock. Perennials in this category include Heuchera, Hostas, and Ferns.

Multi Season - Trim & Rebloom (Weeks 19-38) - These plants typically flower in Late Spring or Early Summer and with a trim will flush

back out to show late season color. Use these plants with their second sales window to supplement late summer and fall programs.

Perennials in this category include Leucanthemum, Nepeta, and Salvia nemorosa.

Start with a Theme

Take things to the next level by adding a theme, such as Pollinator Plants, Deer Resistant, or Shade Perennials. Plants that solve

problems are often among the first off the shelves.

An example of this would be building a Proven Pollinators® table. Start the display with Paint the Town Dianthus in Early Spring,

transitioning to Leading Lady Monarda in Late Spring, COLOR CODED® Echinacea in Early Summer, and finish the season off with FALL

IN LOVE Anemone.

Members of the MEANT TO BEE Collection were selected for their large, full habits, significant landscape presence, and hardiness. Flowers cover the top

SUMMERIFIC® Hardy Hibiscus

SUMMERIFIC® Hibiscus have the potential to make a major impact on any landscape to which they are added. Each variety produces a profusion of blooms

for many weeks beginning in the middle of summer, creating an excellent backdrop for other end-of-year plants. When not in bloom, the dark leaf varieties

of the collection provide excellent contrast against the normal garden green. These plants are late to emerge but fast growers when they do!

A Matter of Habit

SUMMERIFIC® Hibiscus have come a long

way from the tall, rangy habits of old. This

sturdy series has evolved from the towering

varieties that toppled under the weight of

their own flowers into managable garden

perennials that do not. SUMMERIFIC® varieties

improve over older varieties with an earlier,

longer period of bloom and flowers that cover

the entire habit instead of just the top.

The habits of SUMMERIFIC® Hibiscus fall into

two main types. Most are a “gumdrop” shape

and are widest at the base. A subseries of

“crush” types all have columnar habits and

appear more upright in the garden.

What Makes Opening Act Hybrid Phlox Unique

P. paniculata (also known as Tall Garden Phlox) have been one of the most popular types of perennials for

traditional and native gardeners. Phlox offer an abundance of benefits in the landscape, whether serving

as a thriller in summer gardens or as a hub for pollinators. This is a perennial that has been much adored

through the years and rightly so. However, the quest for perfectly formed flower clusters at the top of

each stem has limited the potential of the genus.

Opening Act Phlox take the genus in a different direction. As interspecific hybrids, Opening Act varieties

trade perfectly formed panicles for mounding clusters - but this does not mean they lack any flower

power! Compared to typical P. paniculata varieties, they bloom 2-4 weeks earlier and have significatly

improved rebloom, with some flowers appearing even up to frost. Their performance in the landscape

varies as well with stoloniferous habits, meaning that instead of clumping like P. paniculata, Opening Act

varieties will slowly fill whatever space they are planted into. And they have improved mildew resistance!

Tall Cushion Phlox

A truly one-of-a-kind Phlox, ‘Cloudburst’ finds itself somewhere in

the middle of what’s been seen before. It’s tall, billowy habit flowers

nearly to the ground. The initial flush of flowers appear like a dome of

color in early summer, with rebloom through the end of the season. An

excellent perennial for attracting pollinators.

leaf colors prefer filtered or afternoon

shade. Most varieties bloom in early or

midsummer.
