Our Gardengirls® are synonym for a premium assortment of winter-hardy bud-bloomers. A significant characteristic of this special group of the Central-European native heather (Calluna vulgaris) is that the colourful buds won’t open. The colour of the abundant number of buds therefore will last for a long period of time. Even the foliage can come in various bright colours.
The buds are very tolerant to poor weather patterns of the late autumn. They withstand rain, fog and even frost. The late varieties of the Late Line keep their colours and ornamental value well into winter.
The current assortment of the Gardengirls® brand is the result of over 40 years of breeding and selection. The wide range of bright colours of buds and foliage and several growth habits make the plants unique in the market. Those characteristics mentioned and the easy care make Calluna to the best-selling plant in Germany. The versatile use in the garden, for balcony or terrace or even interior and floral decoration guarantees long lasting enjoyment from late summer well into winter.
The best 60 of those varieties were chosen after undergoing intensive tests under various climatic growing conditions and received Plant Breeder’s Rights protection. Now they can be produced by carefully selected family-owned growers under license. Constant controls and advisory services by the Gardengirls® Team guarantee the compliance with all quality guidelines. The growers produce perfect planting material for the horticultural trade and the consumer in all regions. The complex marketing programme geared towards the consumer is very unique in the market and secures our spot as market leader.
