Penhow Plants Jimmy Jones

At PlantHaven, we believe in Big Ideas from boutique breeders. We connect botanical artisans with broader markets and collaborate whenever we can with growers around the globe to make the world a more colorful place for gardeners.

Jimmy Jones searches the world to find and select plants, which are clearly superior to others of their type. He established Penhow Nursery in 1985 to further develop these innovative ornamentals with both breeding and production.

Working with his original collections from South Africa, Penhow has become the global leader in Nemesia and Diascia breeding, bringing better habits, garden vigor and never-before-seen colors to the class. The varieties in the portfolio have won numerous accolades for their grower friendly habits, range of intense colors and highly perfumed flowers.
