Modified this post on Friday 4/12/2013 to add links to the articles where I got the information.
Has anyone seen completely new varieties being introduced? Meaning 'new' everywhere not just new at a specific plant nursery?
I have seen several but not as many as in prior years. There was a Bailey's webpage listing Bobo as new in 2013 but I have seen people who bought one in prior years.
Two other introductions from Bailey's were for 2014 and included the long awaited Strawberry Sundae and Bloomstruck.
Plants Noveau advertised a new one in its Everlasting Series: Revolution is supposed to be new for 2013.
Monrovia listed Plum Passion as new for 2013 with purplish leaves on top and a shade of pink under.

Up north in Canada, I saw new 2013 introductions of a paniculata that starts white, turns pink and then changes to dark pink called Win's Red. Competition for VS and SF perhaps? The other one being introduced was Hot Chocolate with some green leaves and brown leaves. Also called Velvet Hydrangea.
Has anyone heard of others?
