KFAR HANAGID, Israel: Unrooted cuttings, in a range of over 450 varieties, are offered by the Israeli cutting farm Jaldety Propagation Nurseries. On their display at the 2018 FlowerTrials, Thunbergia, Delosperma and Salvia varieties attracted instant attention.
The Jaldety family concentrate on less usual perennials and annuals. They also select plants that are valuable for their complementary textural qualities, such as Calocephalus brownii Silver Stone. A newcomer in their current listing, on show at this summer’s FlowerTrials, is Cyperus alternifolius ‘Little Prince’. Another is the dwarf Sedum ‘Makinoi Lime’, one of eight varieties offered in this genus.
Salvia is an important genus for Jaldety. In their Trials display this year was the new hybrid ‘Amacite’, deep pink, and ‘Kisses & Wishes’, pale pink, new for the Wish series. In S. greggii the new variety ‘Joy’, again a pink, was among their Trials eye-catchers. The established purple-flowered variety ‘Amistad’ is among their top products.
Jaldety Nurseries operates two production sites in Israel, for export only, and offers cuttings from more than 450 different varieties from open and private stock. The company also offers their customers private stock maintenance and cuttings production services.
