Sunflower, Impatiens Series Make the Cut For Louisiana Super Plants Program

HAMMOND, La. — The LSU AgCenter has announced two new selections for its Louisiana Super Plants program: a disease-resistant impatiens series that offers color for shady spaces and a heat-tolerant sunflower whose blooms will last into the fall.

The Louisiana Super Plants program is an educational campaign of the AgCenter that promotes university-tested, industry-approved plants. Four new Super Plants — two for the cool season and two for the warm season — that have undergone rigorous trials at locations around Louisiana are announced each year.

“While it was a very competitive year, we have four amazing plants that we can say with confidence are at home in every Louisiana landscape,” said Jeb Fields, AgCenter commercial horticulture specialist.
