Ball Colegrave - What's Growing On

Your Stand Out Plants for 2024

TOP ANNUAL Dahlia Dalina Maxi Starburst Pink

TOP PERENNIAL Allium Bubble Bath

TOP FOLIAGE PLANT Coleus Coral Candy


The Ball Summer Showcase has become one of the key trade events in the horticultural diary, attended by over 2,000 nurseries, retailers, landscapers and gardening media.

This year visitors were provided with an extensive presentation of Annuals and Perennials as retail bench and merchandised trolley displays, with the plants grown in a range of pots sizes to help growers and retailers see the real market potential of each variety.

Along with basket, container and flower bed displays, one of the popular areas on display is the product managers trialling area of over 2,000 experimental Annual and Perennial varieties. This provides visitors full transparency on ‘What’s cooking in the kitchen’, a great insight to the continuous stream of future new plant varieties.

In time-honoured tradition, visitors took the opportunity to vote for their favourite Annual and Perennial varieties from any of the trials and plant displays using a ‘Blue Flag’.

We counted these flags every day for over 4 weeks and are delighted to share these results with you. Over 1,500 votes were cast, providing a most useful measure of what look to be your ‘stand-out’ Annual and Perennial plants for 2024:


Top Annuals:

1st Dahlia Dalina®  Maxi Starburst Pink NEW

2nd Coleus Coral Candy NEW

3rd Calibrachoa Can-Can® Oriental NEW
