Gardeners look forward to turning the calendar to another year, when lots of new and exciting plants are introduced to the market. If you’re shopping for ornamentals, look for a trend toward vibrant, bright shades of blue, purple and pink. Unusual color combinations in bicolored flowers are also more popular than ever.

You’ll also find many innovative, improved edibles, including a breakthrough herb that never bolts (‘Bam,’ a basil from Burpee); a nutritious chard with beautiful pink-and-white striped stalks (‘Peppermint Swiss,’ from Park Seed); and the world’s biggest beefsteak tomato (‘SteakHouse Hybrid,’ from Burpee).
