Breeder News

With more than 24 novelties, 40 different crops, and more than 200 varieties, Danziger is proud to introduce its new 20-21 catalog that offers a vast perennial assortment for the upcoming season.

The 20-21 introductions include 3 brand new series including: EARLY BIRD™ Delosperma, LAYLA™ Lavendula and FIRST FLUSH™ Iberis.

“When it comes to our perennial breeding, we do everything with the grower in mind,” says Ori Danziger, Deputy CEO. “Over the past few years, we’ve managed to breed FIRST YEAR FLOWERING varieties that do not require any vernalization. This provides the grower with the advantage of a shorter production time and takes away some of the unpredictability in the growing process”.

Danziger’s perennial assortment is also available in North America through ThinkPlants (, a production and marketing initiative created to bring the best varieties to the North American market.
