BOSKOOP, Netherlands: Dümmen Orange will showcase two new products at this year’s Plantarium event, which will take place on 24 and 25 August in Hazerswoude/Boskoop, the Netherlands: LaDiva Big Night lavender and SpinTop Mango Gaillardia.
According to the breeder, the new LaDiva Big Night French lavender exhibits superior garden performance, which is shown to its advantage both in private gardens—either on a balcony or patio, or planted out in a bed—and in professional gardening and landscaping projects.
The plant’s abundant dark inflorescences beautifully contrast with its greyish foliage. The plants have a dense, compact growth habit and are perfect for cultivating in 2-liter containers. LaDiva Big Night flowers in its first year and has a long blooming window. It is also extremely heat-tolerant and insect-friendly.
The new SpinTop Mango Gaillardia is the latest addition to the SpinTop series, characteried by an upright and solid growth habit. Like all Gaillardia SpinTop varieties, Mango is compact and well-branching, and blooms early with a uniform flower canopy.
