RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year 2019

RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year Competition 2019

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant Of The Year Award was first presented in 2010 to promote and celebrate the continuing work of breeders and nurseries in producing improved new plants.  The RHS Chelsea Plant Of The Year Award celebrates and recognises the exciting and diverse range of new plants which are launched at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show, every year.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the most prestigious of all the Royal Horticultural Society’s Flower Shows, this the perfect venue and occasion to showcase the most exciting new plant introductions to a world-wide audience.  Visitors to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show can see all of the 20 shortlisted plants, including the finalists and winner of the RHS Chelsea Plant Of The Year Award, inside the Grand Pavilion, at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which is held in May in London every year.

Since 2010, all of the exhibitors at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show have been invited to submit their new plant introductions for consideration and assessment by the Chairs of the RHS Plant Committees, the RHS Director of Horticulture, and the Curators of the RHS Gardens, with the hope of their plant being successful and shortlisted in this prestigious competition.

Rhododendron ‘Jessica de Rothschild’ was launched by Millais Nurseries, at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019.

RHS Chelsea Plant of The Year 2019 – The Selection Process

On the Sunday before the RHS Chelsea Flower Show opens, a shortlist of the top twenty plants are selected from all those entered into the competition by the Royal Horticultural Society’s panel of experts, which includes the RHS Plant Committee Chairs, and the RHS Garden Curators.

Then on Monday – the day before the RHS Chelsea Flower Show opens to the public, the finals are held, when the RHS Plant Committee and forum members vote to decide the finalists and the winner of the prestigious accolade of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant Of The Year.

The judges make an assessment of the level of innovation, appeal, excellence, and impact that each of the new plants offer, and cast their votes accordingly.  The assessment process and judging criteria ensures that the plant to which this prestigious award is bestowed is something very special indeed, often offering a unique or new feature to the gardener in the cultivar or genus that is presented.  The RHS Chelsea Plant Of The Year Award is a wonderful showcase of the advances in plant breeding and of the exciting new plants that are available for gardeners to purchase.  The 20 shortlisted plants are available to order, pre-order, or purchase online, and from selected nurseries and garden centres.

Here’s a look at the top twenty shortlisted plants, including the finalists, and the winner of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant Of The Year Award 2019:
