The Retailers’ Choice Awards™ at SNA 2015 were presented to ten exhibiting firms by the Southern Nursery Association in Atlanta, Ga. in July. A panel of independent garden retailers selected the best new products, both live goods and hard goods, for their stores. This year’s selection included Jazz Hands® Variegated Loropetalum from Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs.

Jazz Hands® Variegated is the first ever variegated Loropetalum and perfect for southern climates; with beautiful pink flowers, its new growth is splashed with pink and white variegation, while mature foliage is a rich purple color. This distinctive plant may be used as a specimen or a hedging plant.

Jazz Hands® Variegated is one of several Loropetalums in the new series introduced by Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs. Others include Jazz Hands® Dwarf Pink, Jazz Hands® Dwarf White, Jazz Hands® Bold, and Jazz Hands® Mini.  These plants will be available at retail in spring of 2016.
