Farplants for Nemesia Lady Penelope

Nemesia Lady Penelope is the new bi-coloured Nemesia from the world leading breeding programme of Martine Tellwright at The Farplants Group. 

Martine has always had an interest in this beautiful plant and her breeding work has been instrumental in growing the popularity of Nemesias. Her focus has always been on improving the flowering period, habit and scent as well as the diversity of colours available. 

This new variety has outstanding appeal due to its delightful contrasting hues and outstanding flowering performance. 
Top selling points of Lady Penelope include:
- New colour variant
- Strong scent
- Larger flowers than traditional Nemesias varieties 
- Long flowering period

Reserves of Lady Penelope were strong and we sold-out in a matter of weeks. 2018 production was just under 10,000 plants and production has increased by 30% for 2019.
