Programs Overview

Growing and selling liners is our business; helping you be successful growing and selling finished plants is our mission. Our programs are designed to help you sell the best-looking product to the widest possible audience.


Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs

Since 2004, Spring Meadow has been the sole licensee to select, develop, introduce, distribute, and market shrubs under the Proven Winners brand. Our line of 300+ unique flowering shrubs, vines, and evergreens allow growers and retailers to curate a selection that's tailored to their market, from native plants to niche varieties to those perfectly suited to both hot and cold climates. 

Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Trees

Spring Meadow and Upshoot! are proud to announce Proven Winners ColorChoice Flowering Trees. New to the market in 2019 and to retail in 2020 and beyond, this growing line of ornamental trees for residential landscapes continues the brand promise of superior beauty and performance. 

Shrubs of the Year

What started out as a way to promote a particularly landscape-worthy shrub to the commerical market has grown to include Rose of The Year, Hydrangea of the Year, and Flowering Shrub of the Year, targeted to retail and consumer markets. The Shrubs of the Year enjoy extra promotion and special marketing materials to shine a spotlight on these noteworthy selections.

Local Roots®

Local Roots is a packaging program for all non-branded varieties we offer. Our specially designed tags and containers help growers give finished plants an appealing, professional presentation that's perfect for any retail environment.

Deer Proof®

The Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Deer Proof™ program adds an insignia to containers and tags of the species least likely to be damaged by deer. This placement makes these plants a clear choice for long-lasting landscaping that provides beauty and peace of mind.
