Plant Introductions, Inc. (PII) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bailey Nurseries, functioning as their in-house breeding and trialing program. Our focus is to bring the best new plant varieties to market through targeted breeding efforts based on consumer needs and garden performance. Founded in 2007 by Dr. Michael Dirr, Jeff Beasley and Mark Griffith, PII is very proud of developing top-selling genetics for major brands including Endless Summer® Hydrangeas, First Editions® Plants, Gardener’s Confidence® and Southern Living™.

As Dr. Dirr says, we are an “equal opportunity breeder.” Our goal is to develop a plant the home gardener can be proud of and that the grower can earn a fair profit. Disease resistance, compact habit, extended flower periods and continuous color are all desirable traits we explore. Backed by the passion of our parent company we look to the future with excitement for the next horticultural success story to unfold.
