Garden Trends Overview

Trends4Each year we analyze the purchasing trends of all our perennials in order to understand the purchasing habits of our buyers. In addition to the important best-sellers, there are growth opportunities among many of the smaller genera.

When you understand the strength, the diversity and the appeal of these plants, you also understand who would need them and when they should be used. Sometimes, renewed breeder interest will kickstart these smaller categories because they will introduce new colors, new forms, better disease resistance, other sizes or other characteristics that allow the perennial to reach a broader gardening audience.

As a result, we present the 2014 Creek Hill Garden Trends that identify (14) strong possibilities for growth in both the landscaping and retail markets. Each trend includes a brief analysis and how our mix cultivars covers the market.
