New Annual Succulents for 2007

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

During the spring of 2007, American gardeners will find a number of new succulents available in garden centers, nurseries, and other sources. Some of these will be ones grown as annuals, such as new portulacas or moss rose.

In 2007, Aloe dorthea is being introduced to American gardeners. This plant has lovely spiny foliage that is arranged in the shape of a star. During the warmer months, the leaves will be medium green, turning red during the winter.


New Kalanchoe Varieties

Kalanchoe Banda is a lovely orange flowering variety. The vigorous plants are about medium in height. This has attractive, dark green leaves that provide a perfect background for the vivid blossoms. The flowers open in large clusters. This plant rarely suffers from disease or insect problems.

Kalanchoe Sunkissed Pink is a new addition to the Midi Series. The well branched plants are compact. These are covered with masses of
blooms. Within each flower cluster, you’ll find an array of shades from pale yellow and delicate orange to pastel pinkish-red.

The Calandiva series will include quite a few new additions to its lineup in 2007. Among these are Cherry Red, Cream Rose, Soft Orange, True Red, Violet Rose, Soft Red, Violet, and Yellow.

In the Wizard kalanchoe series, there are also several new varieties. These include Mt. Rushmore and Redwood.

All of these new kalanchoe varieties should be available at local garden centers and online during the 2007 rowing season.


New Varieties of Moss rose or portulaca

During the 2007 season, you’ll see several new varieties of portulaca or moss rose. Stopwatch Scarlet portulaca has vivid red blooms that are richly double. The Stopwatch series of plants are noted for their long blooming season. They begin early in the season as well.

Coral portulaca is a new addition to the Margarita series. Growing from about six to a little over a foot in height, this lovely plant spreads to about a foot across. With its cascading stems, this would be great for hanging baskets. The plants are well branched. Blooming very uniformly, this has large blossoms that are semi-double.

All of these new moss rose varieties can easily be grown from seeds.
