Winning novelties GGP 2017 planted in Sortimentstuin Harry van de Laar
Three of the plants that won a KVBC medal at the 27th edition of trade fair GrootGroenPlus have been planted in Sortimentstuin Harry van de Laar in Boskoop. They were planted by Dick Nieuwesteeg. The plants that were added to this special garden are the Fargesia murieliae ‘Elias’, the Buddleja alternifolia ‘Pmoore12’ (UNIQUE), and the Caryopteris clandonensis ‘Lissteph’ (STEPHI). The first plants won a golden medal, the third plant won a silver medal. The plants were planted in the presentation area that GrootGroenPlus rents in the Sortimentstuin (assortment garden).
The Fargesia murieliae 'Elias', sent in by Van Vliet New Plants BV from Stroe, won a golden medal due to the distinctive and new low and dense growth. This plant, with nicely shaped twigs and fresh green leafs, is very versatile for gardens, pots, and public green. At the Florall Fair in Waregem (B) in March 2018, this plant also won a bronze award.
The Buddleja alternifolia 'Pmooire12' (UNIQUE), sent in by Boomkwekerij Out vof from Hazerswoude-Dorp can be recognised by the dense branches and relatively fine leafs. This unique and innovative plant has a healthy look and blossoms much longer than the B. alternifolia. Management is done by Plantipp.
The Caryopteris clandonensis 'Lissteph' (STEPHI), sent in by Fa. Lucassen Boomkwekerij from Vorden and Boomkwekerij Elst van Bergen mts from Wernhout is the first pink C. clandonensis and was regarded a huge improvement compared to the C. incana 'Autumn Pink'. The flowers are nice and pink, offering a great contrast to the leaf. Management is done by Plantipp as well.
Presenting the plants in the garden and have them re-examined at partner trade fair Florall are among the many additional bonuses that trade fair GrootGroenPlus offers the tree nurseries that send in novelties. In 2018, trade fair GrootGroenPlus also offers the possibility to present novelties for (long-term) inspection in Zundert. The registration form can be found at www.grootgroenplus.nl. The 28th edition of trade fair GrootGroenPlus will be held from 3-5 October 2018 in Zundert.
