We are excited to announce that Bailey Nurseries has acquired Plant Introductions, Inc. (PII), which is now working as the breeding arm of Bailey Nurseries. PII has a long history of introducing exceptional genetics, many of which have been introduced through our Endless Summer® and First Editions® brands. We are fortunate to have built a wonderful partnership with PII partners Mark Griffith, Dr. Michael Dirr and Jeff Beasley (above, L to R) over the past many years, and are humbled and enthusiastic to continue their great work. These visionaries will also remain on board as consultants for Bailey Nurseries in the coming years, providing direction on breeding, plant trials and market trends.

For our customers, this means day-to-day business as usual, as well as the expansion of cutting-edge genetics from Bailey Nurseries and our consumer brands. We will continue to provide top-quality product with high standards for customer service. We will also continue to work closely with breeders around the globe, in conjunction with our in-house breeding program, to continue to introduce revolutionary new varieties to the domestic and international markets. We look forward to the opportunities that this will provide for Bailey Nurseries and our customers.
