We are excited to announce that Plant Introductions, Inc.
(PII) has been acquired by Bailey Nurseries, and we are now working as their
in-house breeding program. Bailey Nurseries is known for their high quality
product, long-standing leadership in the horticulture community and
introduction of some of the most sought after varieties on the market through
the Endless Summer® and First Editions® Collections, many of which were bred by
PII. We are fortunate to have built a wonderful relationship with Bailey
Nurseries over the past many years, and are enthusiastic about the continuation
of our breeding work as a part of their company. PII founding partners Dr.
Michael Dirr, Mark Griffith and Jeff Beasley will remain on board as
consultants for Bailey Nurseries in the coming years, providing direction on
breeding, plant trials and market trends.
For PII licensees, this means day-to-day business as usual, with
communication now going through Bailey Nurseries. For breeders and growers
interested in working with Bailey Nurseries’ new breeding program, please
Thank you for your support, and we hope that you join in our
excitement for what this new venture will bring. Happy New Year and best wishes
for a successful 2015.
