The horticulture world is always changing, and each year we try to keep the Prairie Star list up to date. We noticed that several ornamental pepper cultivars are being discontinued in 2014, including the classic 'Black Pearl' and the smaller 'Purple Flash' and 'Explosive Embers'.  So if these were some of your favorites, buy some seeds now to stock up!

Two Zahara Zinnia cultivars are being discontinued in 2014: 'Double Cherry' and 'Double Fire'.  Both had done well in the K-State flower trials, but there are still plenty of other Zahara colors to choose from.
