  • The Valiant series is more vigorous than the competition AND it comes with disease resistance (IR*) to aerial Phytophthora under field conditions – a “Win-Win” for landscape programs.
  • Makes well-branched, market-ready plants with large flowers that show off high-impact colour at point of sale and in the landscape. 
  • Superior hybrid vigour allows Valiant vinca landscapes to better survive environmental stresses such as sun, heat, drought, salt and cool/damp conditions. 
  • Low maintenance with good landscape longevity. 
  • Available in the key colours.
*Intermediate Resistance (IR): Plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms damage compared to high resistant varieties. Intermediately resistant plant varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pest pressure. Adopted by the ISF Vegetable and Ornamental Crops Section in June 2012.
