Three New (Easy Care) Monrovia Beauties for 2021

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

True showstoppers in the garden, Monrovia’s new plants are also easier to grow and more likely to thrive, even in difficult conditions.

Monrovia Nitty Gritty Peach Rose

Nitty Gritty™ Roses

The Nitty Gritty™ Rose is part of Monrovia’s Rose Collection which features five varieties of vividly colorful, practically carefree shrubs. They are own-root roses and offer exceptional disease resistance. Double flowers are sweetly fragrant, appearing in waves from late spring to autumn. Nitty Gritty Roses are perfect for front border plantings and as accent plants. They tolerate road salt and urban pollution, plus they’re waterwise with improved disease resistance. Interplant them for a low, colorful hedgerow or enjoy as container specimen.

Monrovia Jade Waves

Jade Waves™ Fernspray False Cypress

Jade Waves Fernspray False Cypress brings a serene softness and structure to your garden with beautifully arching branches and lush, airy green foliage.

Bred to be best other False Cypress, this feathery conifer offers a more compact form and pyramidal shape compared to older varieties. Jade Waves will add architectural interest in the garden, making it the perfect landscape evergreen, accent, backdrop for other beauties, or a standout container specimen.

Jade Waves offers cover to your favorite migrating birds. Plus, you’ll love it’s double duty performance during winter holidays. Still, its grace lends beauty all year round.

Monrovia Seaside Serenade Newport Hydrangea

Seaside Serenade® Newport Hydrangea

Seaside Serenade® Newport Hydrangea is more than *just* another beautiful mophead hydrangea. Like its siblings in the Seaside Serenade® Collection, Newport features exceptionally strong stems that do not flop in windy or rainy weather.

Newport also grows with a shorter distance between leaf nodes, keeping the plant compact. Stems, leaves, and flowers are thicker and waxier than other Hydrangeas, allowing blooms to go on and on — up to three months.

Blooms last longer as cut flowers, too! Deep-plum flowers in acidic soils or a vibrant pink in more alkaline soils.

Newport reblooms from early summer until autumn. Perfect for both large- and small-space landscapes.

  1. Hydrangea macrophylla ‘HORTMANI’

  2. Filtered sun, partial shade

  3. 4’ tall, 4’ wide

  4. Zone 4 – 9
