Ball Horticultural Co.
An industry icon
You want your plants to be time-tested and tough—as well as beautiful. That’s why Calloway’s and Cornelius Nursery partners with Ball Horticultural Co., an industry institution started by George J. Ball back in 1905.
Ball Horticultural Co. uses all its resources to ensure you achieve success in the garden. The company’s global family of breeders, growers, distributors, and research and development teams has a strong presence in over 20 countries on six continents. What’s more, Ball is committed to creating plants that are beautiful and positively impact our surroundings.
“For all of time we have used plants primarily for aesthetic purposes only,” says Anna Ball, president and CEO of Ball Horticultural Co. “Today we are crossing a threshold where plants are being used for work in repairing man’s impact in the environment.”
Ride the Wave! Wave Petunias are so popular, the plant even has its own fan club. It’s easy to see why—these gorgeous flowers are prolific bloomers that make a big statement in the garden. With a variety of colors, shapes and sizes to choose from, you’re sure to find a Wave Petunia that matches your unique style.
Long-lasting color. Simple to choose. Simple to use. Those are the building blocks of Ball’s Simply Beautiful plant collection. Whether it’s a sunny or shady location, there’s a Simply Beautiful selection to fit the bill. Many of these plants are particularly suited for container gardening—a favorite pastime for Texas gardeners.
With the right plants Texas gardeners can enjoy outstanding color in early Spring and Fall. Ball Horticultural Co.’s Matrix Pansies are among the selections that make that happen. You’ll find these bright and cheery Pansies in our stores when cooler weather prevails. Don’t let their dainty look fool you. Matrix Pansies quickly bounce back after being pounded by rain—and they hold up well during a light frost!
