DE LIER, The Netherlands: Dümmen Orange, leading breeder and producer of plants and flowers will showcase its sustainable developments and latest products in bedding plants, perennials, pot plants and tropical plants at FlowerTrials®, June 12 to 15.
This year’s theme is ‘Orange is the New Green’. At our locations in Rheinberg and Naaldwijk we will deep dive into GreenGuard and Greencare developments and results.
GreenGuard is the new protocol in the industry to meet growers and consumer demand. The result are sustainable grown products by our customers, resulting from the Dümmen Orange GreenGuard production at our mother stock locations. By minimizing the use of chemical plant protection products, Dümmen Orange enables customers to introduce beneficials immediately to their crop.
Greencare is the phytosanitary policy of Dümmen Orange to deliver healthy and clean starting material to growers worldwide. It guides us to prevent, control and minimize phytosanitary risks from breeding to production.
We’ll also be presenting our wide range of products and many new varieties. Amongst the displayed highlights will also be new additions.
Impatiens New Guinea – SunStanding
SunStanding is outstanding anywhere! The name says it all: SunStanding hybrid New Guinea Impatiens have a strong adaptability to sun, heat, and humidity, but easily grow in shade as well. SunStanding satisfies with its compact growth and early flowering. This year Dümmen Orange is introducing this new series with eight colours to the European market. SunStanding is available in QuickTurn™ cutting, which offers growers an extra crop turn. The cuttings are ideal for direct-stick applications. To complete this series, a colourful six pack with a SunStanding handle is available.
Pot Mum – Rainbow Circus
Circus is a new bicoloured variety with nice red and yellow flowers which is a great addition to our Rainbow series. Grower-friendly due to the fit in assortments and easy-to-sell due to its green flower centers. It has strong colour retention across all seasons and creates a vivid contrast between the colours. It’s no surprise we named this series Rainbow- like sunshine after rain, this series certainly brightens up your day! This single-flowered series is characterized by the stunningly beautiful bicolour effect wrapped around a fresh green center. Definitely the most passionate pot mum around!
Leucanthemum maximum – Sweet Daisy Birdy
The Leucanthemum Sweet Daisy series by Dümmen Orange is an improvement on the classic garden daisy. These new varieties are characterized by a uniform plant structure and deep, dark green foliage. The robust flowers open in late June and show off their brilliant white colour. Whether in pots on the terrace or planted in large beds, the Sweet Daisies are a real eye-catcher for early summer. Sweet Daisy Birdy, with its special umbrella blossoms, is brand new for the upcoming season.
Pot Carnation – Dianthus Sprint Macy
Macy is the new attractive pot carnation with large, bright and clean pink, double flowers in the Dümmen Orange assortment. The bicolour effect in the flower creates a special butterfly look and confers her a feminine touch. Macy is part of the compact and early Sprint Series and shows up with a perfectly round habit. Like all Sprint varieties, Macy can be used for early spring sales to open the bedding season, as well as a summer eye-catcher after the season.
Confetti Garden™ – Early Love
The successful bed and balcony concept has been adapted for perennials. This new Confetti Garden™ mix features three Phlox Early varieties perfectly matched in growth, colour, and earliness. The mix is available as a normally rooted young plant or overwintered in PowerQuix plugs. Confetti Garden™ Early Love demonstrates a uniform growth and an exceptional abundance of flowers.
I´CONIA Portofino Yellow
I´CONIA garden begonias proved to be the favourite Garden Beauty´s last summer. Fully flowering from May to October, I´CONIA’s big shiny flowers and strong dark leaves make this plant suitable for both sun and shade. The next generation of I´CONIA is coming up with the new Portofino series. They are compelling with a great round habit, stronger leaves, and bright double flowers on top. I´CONIA Portofino Yellow adds a bold yellow to the colour range of I´CONIA.
Dümmen Orange invites retailers and professionals from the green industry to admire its rich and broad product range. Like last year our FlowerTrials® in Germany will take place at Dümmen Orange Dammweg 20 in Rheinberg. In The Netherlands we will open our doors again for our customers at Bosweg 6 in Naaldwijk. Besides these official FlowerTrials® locations we will also welcome visitors in The Netherlands at our Cut Chrysanthemum trial location, Oudecampsweg 35C in De Lier.
