What exactly does growing a Proven Winners plant mean? The PW group searches the world to find and select plants which are clearly superior to others of their type. They test large numbers of different varieties in their trials in MI, NH, CA, FL, Germany, and Japan. That selection process translates into better performance for the home gardener. The plants are more resistant to disease and insect pests, have heat and humidity tolerance and a broad geographic range of superior performance, all of which means they are overall proven performers. Because of their rigorous testing program, the Proven Winners group has tagged the slogan ‘The right plant for all places’.

Although I’ve only named 3 varieties in the PW brand, there’s a ton of options. Many garden centers offer fully finished hanging baskets or containers of PW’s in both single and combination plantings. But if you like to create your own, simply look for the Proven Winners pots in which the varieties are grown. You’ll find an abundance of textures and colors to create your own palette of planters!
Be sure to check out the Proven Winners website that is chock full of growing and gardening information. It also has a garden center locator to assist you in finding that perfect group of Proven Winners that is just waiting for you!
