10 Gardening Trends Expected to Grow in 2021

Bob Vila Logo By Mark Wolfe of Bob Vila | Slide 2 of 11: Each spring, growers release new plant cultivars for sale in garden centers. Many of these plants are brand-new extensions of existing plant lines, with enhanced features like new flower colors or better disease resistance. Some of these new plants exhibit never-before-seen characteristics, such as a dwarf growth habit or new fruit color. When asked which new plant releases she most looks forward to seeing in garden centers in 2021, Dubow shared these:   Encore Azalea has a well-earned reputation for bringing lush and long-lasting azaleas to market, and their spring 2021 new releases are no exception. Autumn Starburst is a playful bicolor bloom that layers coral patterns on white margins. Autumn Majesty pairs bold purple color with soft ruffled blooms.   Midnight Cascade from the Bushel and Berry Collection is the first hanging basket blueberry on the market! White bell-shaped flowers in the spring lead to an abundant summer crop of blueberries. The ripe fruit is packed with antioxidants and aromatic vanilla flavors, and the foliage has hints of red that will darken in the fall weather.  Syringa New Age Lavender It's a new age for lilacs! This compact, well-behaved lilac from Bloomables finishes faster than others on the market. It produces fragrant flowers in the spring, is resistant to mildew, and displays attractive foliage throughout the season.
