AmeriSeed is proud to have bred the following AAS winners:-

Zinnia Holi Scarlet F1
(
National: 2019 AAS Flower Winner)

This beautiful Winner is named after the famous Holi Festival of Colors because of its vibrant color! AAS Judges deemed this an “excellent flower” because of the bright solid color, size, and the number of blooms as well as disease resistance, which was superior to the comparisons. Holi Scarlet will keep producing fresh, colorful blooms all season long, even through heat, humidity, and drought. Uniform and compact mounding plants will make a stunning mass planting of vibrantly colored deep red flowers attracting in both people and pollinators.

Marigold Big Duck Gold F1
(
National: 2019 AAS Flower Winner)

QUACK QUACK! There’s a New Marigold On The Pond! Big Duck Gold sports very large golden-yellow flowers that continue blooming throughout the season, much longer than the comparisons. These marigolds begin the season putting energy into establishing a solid, healthy plant with clean, deep-green foliage. Then, when it starts blooming, watch out! Full, “plump” blooms top the 15” plants and continue blooming through the end of the season. You’ll want to use these marigolds everywhere: in beds and containers; in landscapes as mini hedges, back of the border plants, or even as a filler in new perennial beds.

Vinca Mega Bloom Polka Dot F1
(
Regional: 2019 AAS Flower Winner)

The hearty Mega Bloom vinca series has been bred to withstand heat and humidity without succumbing to disease. Polka Dot excels in that area plus sports huge showy flowers on full, vigorous plants that stay tidy and compact. The leaves of Mega Bloom Polka Dot stayed a healthy green all season resulting in large healthy plants all summer until frost. Each large bloom (3-4”) has attractive overlapping petals in snowy white with a bright pink eye.

Polka Dot is the most popular Vinca in Japan.
Growers will benefit from the early bloom time, compactness in the greenhouse and plant uniformity.

Marigold Garuda Deep Gold F1
(
National: 2019 AAS Flower Winner)

Sometimes, it’s an AAS judge who writes the best description: “Favorite performer of the trial! This marigold not only has a strong color but while the comparison is brown and rotting [in late summer], this entry is going strong through the end of September! … it is much more resistant to disease than the comparison. Also, the vigorous habit is exactly what you would want from a cut flower for season-long flowers.”

This marigold provides a bright regal shade of orange in an extremely vigorous, cut flower type marigold. In the garden, it had cleaner foliage and overall larger flower size. In the vase, it is outstanding, lasting at least 10 days.

Marigold Big Duck Yellow F1
(Regional
: 2019 AAS Flower Winner)

A long-lasting winner in the trial gardens! Big Duck Yellow is another marigold color in the series that has great heat and disease tolerance. The large 4” flowers are well-supported on sturdy, compact, uniformly even plants that consistently produced more flowers for a longer period than the comparisons. The fully double, bright yellow blooms are a beautiful contrast to the deep green foliage and raise their heads well above the foliage for a standout display. Big Duck Yellow marigolds are a beautiful addition to any landscape, garden or container where long-lasting color is a benefit.

Marigold Big Duck Orange F1
(Regional
: 2019 AAS Flower Winner)

Big Duck Orange joins sibling Big Duck Gold in a new marigold series that continues blooming throughout the season, even longer than the comparisons. These marigolds grow vigorously creating well-branched plants with clean, deep-green foliage. Fully double and beautifully colored 4-inch orange blooms “pop” on the 15” plants and continue blooming through the end of the season. The judges raved about this variety’s vigor, flower size and superior disease, rain, heat and drought resistance long past when the comparisons succumbed. This beauty is perfect for the gardener looking for an easy-to-grow, low maintenance annual.
