Plantipp aims to repeat RHS Chelsea Flower Show new plant success

After the best new plant winning introduction of Clematis Amber last year, Plantipp BV is going to introduce three new varieties at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, on 23-27 May this year.

Morus rotunbiloba Charlotte Russe (‘Matsunaga’), Clematis ‘Taiga’ and Leontopodium alpinum Blossom of Snow (‘Berghman’) are the latest introductions and Plantipp "is confident that all three make a good chance to become the Chelsea Plant of the Year 2017".

Morus Charlotte Russe is a dwarf mulberry that fruits at an early age on new and old wood and is "ideal for in a pot on the patio or balcony". It has a long flowering and fruiting season so you can enjoy its delicious fruit for a long period.

Clematis ‘Taiga’ has flowers that are purple blue. Throughout the flowering season, the flowers change in colour.

Leontopodium Blossom of Snow: this Edelweiss has large flowers that are characteristic white with a yellow heart against silver grey foliage. Blossom of Snow is a good choice for rock gardens, mixed plantings and perennial borders but is also as a cut flower.
