At Plantarium 2015, 11 varieties managed by Plantipp won a medal. This year 30 varieties from Plantipp’s portfolio are competing to win the title of best novelty.
Van Rijssen said: "Competing or not, we are proud to represent all thirty promising new varieties, each one with its own qualities, story and performance. Take x Sedoro Blue Elf for example. A breakthrough in breeding as it is the first-ever inter-generic hybrid between Sedum and Orostachys. Lagerstroemia Eveline's flowering is unique in many ways, and even more special is the fact that 10% of the proceeds will be donated to KiKa, a Dutch charity foundation that brings in fundings solely for research to childhood cancers."
His daughter Kim van Rijssen added: "Don’t ask me to choose a favourite variety, I honestly can’t pick one. There is the stunning Clematis Amber, which won this year’s RHS Plant of the Year Award, the Hibiscus Magenta Chiffon, which won an award at the 2016 HTA Plant Show. Visitors just have to see and judge for themselves at Plantarium."
Sedum Sparkler Blue Elf is another featured new launch.
From 24-27 August team Plantipp will be present at Plantarium in Boskoop, the Netherlands, at stand number 8.
Plantipp specialises in royalty management and represents breeders of new ornamental plant varieties worldwide, with 250 varieties are managed and promoted in Europe, U.S.A., Australia, New Zealand, South-Korea, China, Japan, Israel and South Africa.
