                           More CAST Superlatives

                           By Jeanne Svob, Seed Business Manager
                           As I mentioned, it was a banner year for introductions at the California Spring Trials
                           (CAST). In addition to the dozens of annuals covered in our print edition, here are
                           some notable perennial and edible picks you’ll want to consider.
                           Early bird coreopsis
                           Double the Sun coreopsis, new from PanAmerican Seed, is just the ticket to capture
                           the first perennial sales of the season. This ultra-early variety finishes up to three
                           weeks ahead of Early Sunrise in cool, early-season weather, and up to two weeks
                           earlier for summer finish. It’s first-year flowering on a controlled plant habit that
                           doesn’t skimp on flower size. Double the Sun produces semi-double, golden yellow
                           flowers comparable in size to Early Sunrise or SunKiss.
