Terra Nova celebrates 25 years
Terra Nova Nurseries, a world leader in plant breeding, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its founding. Ken Brown and Dan Heims formed a professional alliance that would change the face of horticulture. Along with co-founders Jody Brown and Lynne Bartenstein, they vertically integrated a breeding company and tissue culture facility, combining forces to generate and introduce a stable of more than 1,000 new perennials and annuals. Many of these new plants have won national and international awards, and ongoing breeding accomplishments have put genera such as Heuchera and Tiarella on the horticulture map.
