2015 Featured plants & collections

Monrovia is a leader in the acquisition, trialing and promotion of new plants. We work with breeders and plant hunters around the world and, of course our own Monrovia Craftsmen. Our Craftsmen are always looking for what’s new and exciting. We look for plants that are healthier, hardier and easier to care for. We then nurture and evaluate potential plants in Monrovia’s Bullpen™ named for a baseball bullpen where pitchers warm up. Typically, only one in 50 plants under observation is added to our line. That way you know every Monrovia plant is exceptional.
