Bigger and better than ever A grower’s work is never done,
but take some time to get acquainted with the new Darwin
Perennials catalog. Start with our outstanding Ball Seed Exclusive
varieties on page 5 and then work your way from A to Z!
When you see this icon, you’ll know it’s a Darwin Perennials
exclusive. We like to call them Perennials With Staying Power™
for their longevity in the marketplace and in the garden. I’m sure
you’ll appreciate their SELLING power, too.
Supply is just as important as genetics. Darwin Colombia, our
newest farm to support your business, promises a reliable supply
of high-quality unrooted cuttings. You can also count on Florexpo
to help meet your Darwin genetics needs week in and week
out. Looking for something other than unrooted cuttings? See
page 123 for a list of well-known perennial young plant suppliers
licensed to carry Darwin Perennials genetics.
As always, count on your Ball Seed sales rep to bring you the
latest perennial introductions and our customer service team
to stand behind every order. And don’t forget the ease of
ordering from Ball WebTrack, with live availability direct from
the farm.
Thank you for your trust in Darwin Perennials – have a great
growing season!

Darwin Perennials essential culture Guide
Upon Receipt
Insects and Diseases
Unrooted perennials should be stuck as quickly as possible. Tender cuttings such
as Artemisia, Agastache, Lavandula, Perovskia and Salvia should be immediate
priority. Cuttings that cannot be stuck immediately should be maintained in a
cooler at 40 to 45°F (4 to 7°C). Refer to the Propagation Guide for crop-specific
suggestions. Generally speaking, herbaceous perennials benefit from a basal
stem dip of IBA rooting hormone to speed up the rooting process. Be careful with
misting levels. Perennials suffer from receiving too much mist more often than
from too little mist.
Incoming perennial liners or cuttings should be inspected for pests and diseases.
Apply appropriate treatments as needed.
After transplant, regular scouting and careful observation is critical to maintaining
a healthy crop. The practice of integrated pest management (IPM) will reduce
losses and pesticide costs by identifying and correcting problems before they
escalate. If a pesticide treatment is necessary, please refer to the manufacturer's
label regarding proper usage. It is always a good practice to test new varieties for
phytotoxicity when making pesticide applications.
Rooted perennials should be unpacked and inspected for active root growth. It
is often preferable to place recently received perennial liners on a bench or the
Vernalization and Bulking
ground for a few days to help them overcome transport stress. This is particularly
important for liners that have been shipped in boxes. Water on arrival and look

to flower. The length of time varies from just a few weeks below 50°F (10°C) to as
much as 10 weeks below 40°F (4°C). Generally speaking, early Spring-flowering
perennials like Phlox subulata, Iberis and Alyssum require a cold period to flower.
At Transplant
Many perennials such as Salvia nemorosa, Monarda and Phlox paniculata do
not require vernalization to flower but do benefit from a cold, short day bulking
Well-rooted and toned perennial liners are able to withstand transplant stress
very well. Critical to success, provide newly transplanted perennials with immediate period. In these cases, Summer or Fall planting increases root and crown mass
irrigation. Watering at the end of the transplant line rather than after you’ve filled and the corresponding flowering shoots on the plants. It has also been shown to
a bed greatly improves uniformity of new root establishment. In any case, do not hasten flowering in many species by up to four weeks.
allow media surface to dry after transplant for the first several days until new
roots are extending into the media. Perennials do not like to be planted too deep. Overwintering
Generally speaking, perennial liners should be planted level with the soil surface.
The keys to success when overwintering perennials are:
Use a well-drained media containing properly composted bark. These types

media. The media should be stabilized to a pH of 5.8 to 6.2 and an EC of 1 to
1.2 using Saturated Media Extract (SME) method.
• Dead leaf/tissue removal
• Rodent control
Fertilization
• Low media EC when entering dormancy
• Avoid freeze and thaw cycles
Perennials can be fed using liquid fertilizers on a periodic or constant feed
basis. Liquid fertilizer rates can be found in the Perennial Finishing Guide. Use

and dormant Hemerocallis. Apply a broad spectrum fungicide prior to covering
or closing hoop houses to reduce disease pressure.
Spacing
Spring-planted perennials should be spaced to finished spacing after transplant.
This allows better growing conditions and helps to avoid overcrowding and
stretch. The added airflow will help reduce foliar diseases and allow for better
insect control.
Once weather conditions moderate, be sure to scout for insect and disease
problems and respond accordingly. Also, check pH and EC levels in the media.
Perennials that emerge from dormancy will begin to grow rapidly, and the lack
of adequate nutrition will lead to reduced branching, lower leaf loss and smaller
flowers.
Fall-planted perennials can be spaced at transplant in temperate climates or
placed pot-tight in climates where temperatures cause containers to freeze.
In either case, proper spacing for the anticipated finished size of the plant will
dramatically improve plant quality and reduce labor.
