Breeders have delivered the New Day series that boasts large flowers, short peduncles and beefy-looking plants. Even with all that, New Day varieties are more compact and easier to produce for growers, and hold well at retail. Gardeners and landscapers love this drought-tolerant series for its excellent performance in containers and baskets, gardens and groundcovers. If you're tight on greenhouse space, New Day responds well to high-density pack programs.
