Lovely Lisianthus has always been a favourite cut flower, but in recent years this variety has gained enormously in popularity. Consumers love the fine elegant look of single varieties or versatile double Lisianthus, the ‘rose without thorns’. Stunning as mono-vases or perfect in mixed bouquets, there is no end to the possibilities.
Long, thick stems and perfectly formed flowers are essential qualities for market success with Lisianthus. Sakata leads the way in breeding highly specialised categories of Lisianthus to help growers produce outstanding crops regardless of day length, temperature or light intensity. Sakata’s excellent genetics, combined with solid technical support, have helped make Lisianthus one of the top-selling cut flowers in the world!
SunPatiens® is the All-Weather Impatiens. The Compact series is ideal for
garden beds, containers and balcony boxes and flowers all through summer and
autumn, up to the first frosts. Orchid Blush is a new refreshing colour in the Compact
series. It has an excellent plant habit with a great coverage of flowers above
the foliage. The soft, pastel Orchid Blush colour is a wonderful addition to the series.
The new generation for the pot and patio! Petchoa ‘BeautiCal’ has a more mounded habit than SuperCal® and larger flowers, making it the ideal choice for the pot and patio segment. BeautiCal’s large, weather and disease resistant plants recover from rain much faster than standard Petunias, and the exceptional colours will be an absolute WOW on retail benches. A combination of the best features of Petunia and Calibrachoa, BeautiCal is set to be the New Beauty Standard for patios, terraces and balconies.
As an independent breeder of premium bedding plants, pot crops and cut flowers, Sakata has over one hundred years of experience in developing quality genetics for commercial growers and gardeners.
Earlier innovations, like the world’s first F1 hybrid pansy introduced in 1966, have become industry standards – and their genetics are still to be found in today’s leading series. This history also means that we have the breeding experience and the creativity to create the breakthroughs of today and the classics of tomorrow, such as Candy Showers, the first-ever trailing Antirrhinum from seed.
