New plants are always exciting. But it is sometimes more exciting when a plant you know well and have loved gets an important new update.

In this Alert we highlight three such classic genera - Lupinus, Dianthus, and Alcea - boasting recent new cultivars that are rekindling interest in these somewhat forgotten groups.

They are in bud or bloom now at the nursery if you want to come see them. If you're a mail order customer, all of these plants can be ordered online. If you have already placed an order that hasn't shipped yet you can email us to make additions.

Enjoy!

Cheers, Gary and the Phoenicians
