Both trade fairs invite the Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society (KVBC) for a new plant inspection, and this exchange is the first step towards a more intensive cooperation.
The plant that Plantarium will present during GrootGroenPlus at the end of September has not been selected yet. Plantarium will be held in August of 2015 and GrootGroenPlus has decided to present the best novelty of 2014 there.
This means that Plantarium can show the Leucothoe keiskei 'Opstal16' (HALLOWEEN). This plant, supplied by Boomkwekerij Ron van Opstal BV in Zundert, is innovative because of its very narrow, elegantly bent leafs.
One of its remarkable characteristics is the colouring of the leafs: in the fall and the winter, they turn a dark shade of red. The Leucothoe keiskei 'Opstal16' (HALLOWEEN) is a compact plant that is well and originally presented and really adds something to the assortment of shrubs that is sold in the fall.
The 25th edition of GrootGroenPlus will be held from 30 September to 2 October in Zundert. The 33rd edition of Plantarium is held from 26 to 29 August in the Plantarium building in Boskoop.
