Laburnum anagyroides YELLOW ROCKET® takes best in show at New Plant Awards
Laburnum anagyroides YELLOW ROCKET® from Frank P Matthews has been crowned this year as Best in Show at the New Plant Awards on the opening morning of the HTA National Plant Show. The show, sponsored by Hortipak, takes place today and tomorrow (19 and 20 June) at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry.
Laburnum anagyroides Yellow Rocket® is a fantastic form of the already popular spring flowering Laburnum. It is a columnar growing tree with a very narrow upright habit so perfect for any size of garden and even patios and balconies. The bright sunny yellow pendant flowers adorn the tree in May creating a beautiful sunny effect and perfect for attracting bees and butterflies to the garden. It is also winter hardy and heat resistant.
The New Plant Awards, sponsored by the RHS, are the beating heart of the show and create an area bursting with inspiration for our visitors.
Judging Panel member Sabatino Urzo from RHS comments, “We really were spoilt for choice with this year’s plants with all the category winners really bringing something different to the market. It was a unanimous decision that the Laburnum won overall – perfect for gardens of all sizes with its compact nature and bright yellow flowers.”
