Spiraea WALBERTON’S® PLUM CARPET wins the Visitor Vote

Company: HTA

Farplants Sales Ltd - Spiraea WALBERTON’S® PLUM CARPET has been awarded the Visitor Vote, sponsored by Floramedia, at the HTA National Plant Show 2024 at the NAEC, Stoneleigh.

An award voted entirely by visitors to the show, Spiraea WALBERTON’S® PLUM CARPET has a compact bushy habit which makes it an ideal shrub for small garden space and container growing. It has outstanding disease resistance and is extremely cold-hardy. Once established, it will give you years of excellent performance with very little maintenance. 

Andy Merrick from Farplants said: “We are really, really pleased and quite taken aback. It’s a fantastic product. It’s not the best time of year to show it, so we’re pleased people have voted for it and they’ve been able to take the time to look at the product and think about what it will be like in the spring; it has great purple coverage and partners really well with MAGIC CARPET.  


“The visitor vote is the one that means a lot, really pleased. Everyone at Farplants Group will be chuffed; I know it will be communicated with the teams and Walberton, who grow this wonderful variety, and there will be a few drinks whilst watching the football tonight, no doubt!” 

Alan Down, HTA President, said: “It’s great to see visitors choosing an easy-to-grow plant that will appeal to a range of gardeners, from the first-time gardeners to those who are more experienced.”
