Each year, American Nurseryman features an entire magazine dedicated to the latest and most beautiful flowers for the upcoming new year. For 2016, this is no different.

This year we received 152 submissions from 26 companies and two universities. They feature breathtaking color, promising varieties, and exciting breakthroughs.
