About usHem Genetics

Hem Genetics | "Low Grow Approved"
Hem Genetics breeds, develops and markets both seed- and vegetatively raised ornamental pot and bedding plant varieties for the professional grower market. Hem Genetics has developed highly successful varieties which require less or no plant growth regulators (PGRs). These genetic dwarf varieties are marked as "Low Grow Approved” in our assortment and include Petunia Limbo, Mambo, Geranium Nano and Salvia Reddy. No or reduced use of plant growth regulators (PGRs) is not only financially beneficial to professional growers, but also enables them to take a step forward in sustainable cultivation of plants. In combination with the creation of novel ornamental varieties, Hem Genetics continues to apply similar concepts in its breeding activities that will contribute to a greater awareness of sustainable applications in our industry.

Dianthus SUPRA™ F1 Pink
The Supra varieties Crimson, White, Salmon, Red, Purple and the new Pink are the result of interspecific Dianthus crossing. These compact, well-branched plants are hardy, flower early and also perform well at high temperatures.
A varied range of outdoor trials worldwide have produced outstanding results, demonstrating that Supra Pink, in particular, excels in extremely hot conditions. As a result, this year it won the prestigious All America Selection Award (AAS), previously also awarded to Supra​new-series-and-colours
Limbo *GP* Red, Rose & Burgundy Picotee
Limbo *GP* Red, Rose & Burgundy Picotee
The introduction of the Limbo *GP* Picotee series in the colours Red, Rose & Burgundy is another breakthrough in the breeding of bi-colour, genetically compact Petunia from seed, with more colours being developed. The Limbo *GP* assortment has been extended with the addition of two single colours: Orchid veined and Pink. This means that the series now has 24 colours!
Limbo *GP* does not require growth regulators, bringing considerable cost savings for growers and making the cultivation process more eco-friendly and less labour-intensive. For both growers and consumers, Limbo *GP* performs superbly throughout the season, and lends itself well to many​new-series-and-colours

The shape of the plant and fruit make Sweet Valentines ideal for growing in pots, containers and hanging baskets or as a striking addition to mixed pots. Sweet Valentines is a Fleuroselect Approved​new-series-and-colours
