ESSEN, Germany: Already sure to wow the crowds at this week’s IPM ESSEN show is Cupressus Snowcrest. This two-toned conifer will occupy pride of place in CNB New Plants’ booth at IPM ESSEN which kicks off tomorrow in Germany.
Cupressus Snowcrest is a two-toned conifer submitted by Dutch breeder Marc Verschuren and marketed through CNB NewPlants™ which will display the novelty in booth, hall 1 D 39. The conifer stands out for its lush green branches with cream coloured edges, a unique colour combination which is visible all throughout the growing season. Snowcrest® is a fast growing Cupresses and is suited for borders and patio pots. The semi hardy shrub is available year round and is a stunning feature for both indoor and outdoor plantings. Even under hot climate conditions its colours will stay true. This new Cupressus is very different from the ordinary Cupressus which has single colour green branches.
