It is an opportunity to explore new varieties and rediscover old favorites, whether one is gearing up for the spring garden or planning ahead for the summer. The catalog is a treasure trove of inspiration for everyone.
As we immerse ourselves in the beauty of nature’s cycles, it is wonderful to have resources like Jung Seed to accompany us on our gardening journey. Do you have any specific plants or varieties from the catalog that caught your eye for this upcoming season?
Annual plants complete their life cycle within one year. The life cycle includes germination, growth, blooming, and dying. Annuals are subdivided into three groups: hardy or cool-season, tender or warm-season, and half-hardy annuals. We love annuals because they are generally easy to grow, perfect for filling in bare spots, and produce quite the color scheme without a long-term commitment. Jung Seed has a lovely selection of new annuals this year. We’ve chosen a few annuals we are excited to plant in our spring gardens this year.
Firefox is a double sunflower that stands out with its unique coloration. The fluffy, pollen-free double blooms showcase golden yellow petals with reddish tones concentrated at their centers. Their upward-facing orientation gives them a distinct appearance in the landscape. These compact plants are ideal for both containers and landscapes. Furthermore, it is a long-blooming selection, providing multiple waves of blooms and extending its visual appeal over an extended period.
Compact and pollen-free, these branched plants produce an abundance of long-lasting 4-inch double blooms in a bright shade of lemon yellow. They are ideal for creating cheery sunflower hedges, adding a vibrant and lively touch to the landscape.
The lusciously colored blooms of these plants won’t fade in the heat of summer. The 2-4 inch blooms start as lemon yellow with a dark peach center and mature to shades of peach, buff, and light coral, offering a captivating color-changing display. These vigorous, healthy plants bloom prolifically from summer to frost without requiring deadheading. Notably, they were recognized as a 2022 AAS Regional Winner in the Northeast and West/Northwest regions.
Flower bulbs can be Annuals or Perennials depending on the variety. After a period of growth and flowering, they have a period of dormancy. Summer-blooming bulbs should be planted in mid-spring after the last frost. Spring-blooming bulbs should be planted in the fall. Jung Seed has some of the most beautiful selections of bulbs available online.
This gladiolus will delight you with its unusual colors, excellent form, large blooms, and overall dependability. These bulbs produce the largest flowers and spikes, perfect for summer-cut flower bouquets.
The bold blooms have multiple layers of petals, commanding attention in flower borders. The large, pollen-free, pink flowers have a wide white margin on each petal. The stems are very sturdy, bearing 3-5 blooms that are exceptionally long-lasting in the garden.
For a mass of color and real beauty, a canna bed is hard to beat. They are easy to grow, withstand heat, are not bothered by insects, and bloom from July until frost. Taroudant has eye-catching blooms with a bold combination of orange and yellow.
Jung Seed offers a wide variety of fruits for spring planting. Some of our popular berries include strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. We also offer a large variety of fruit trees including apple, cherry, lemon, and peach. Jung Seed has a great selection of new fruits this year. Hand-picked for flavor and productivity you are sure to enjoy.
This cherry variety stands out as one of the best sweet black cherries suitable for cold areas. It has late-season bloom, coupled with frost-tolerant blossoms, and above-average tree hardiness, making this self-fertile black sweet cherry exceptionally dependable in colder regions. The cherry trees produce substantial crops of large, firm, black-red, and flavorful fruits that demonstrate resistance to cracking.
This Earliglow hybrid grows large, flavorful berries. The attractive, glossy red fruits maintain their size admirably throughout the season, a notable characteristic of an early variety. The strawberry plants are robust and vigorous, exhibiting good resistance to verticillium wilt and red stele. Galletta is well-suited for the southeastern United States.

Within, the pinkish-red flesh delights with great flavor and texture, ensuring an enjoyable eating experience. Additionally, the high-yielding plants showcase excellent fruit-setting ability, a trait that remains consistent even in cooler temperatures.
Perennial plants often live for more than two years. The plants will grow and bloom in spring, die during the winter, and regrow in the spring. Perennials usually require more room to grow than Annuals. Some Perennials can live even as long as 10 years such as Peonies. Perennials are an excellent addition to your flower garden.
Adding wonderful texture and movement to landscapes, these upright plants have very narrow, green leaves that transition to shades of orange and gold in autumn. During early fall, the plants produce spectacular 5-inch bottlebrush plumes that start smoky purple and gradually fade to tan. Notably, these deer-resistant plants not only enhance the visual appeal of the landscape but also provide lovely winter interest.
Enhance your hosta borders with fantastic color contrast. The cupped and corrugated 4-inch leaves feature narrow, green centers and very wide, bright yellow margins that almost entirely cover the surface. As the season progresses, these margins soften to shades of ivory, adding dynamic visual interest. Additionally, the plant bears small, light lavender flowers, contributing to its overall charm.

This resilience and prolific flowering make them a tremendous asset, creating a significant impact on landscapes.
Roses are one of the most popular flowers to grow. They are beautiful and smell exquisite. Roses generally live 5 to 7 years if well taken care of. The oldest living rose is thought to be over 1,000 years old! Jung Seed has a variety of antique, climbing, floribunda, grandiflora, groundcover, hybrid tea, and shrub roses.

The flowers of this plant form an ever-changing kaleidoscope of color. Orange-yellow buds open to reveal fragrant 2-3 inch flowers adorned with wavy petals and orange stamens.
