UK-bred Choisya wins Dutch prize

During the annual meeting of the Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society (KVBC), Choisya White Dazzler was voted Best Novelty 2015.

Marketers Plantipp says the Peter Moore-bred Choisya White Dazzler ('Londaz') was followed by the KVBC over a longer period of time in the so called field inspection. The judging committee awarded this shrub with a KVBC-Award Gold because of, among other things, the abundant flowering with fragrant flowers from April to October. This Choisya has a spherical growth habit and dark green, separated foliage with narrow leaves. It is very hardy and excellent for gardens and public green areas.

 

The KVBC-judging committee has chosen six nominations from all Gold Awards in 2015. On 15 February, the members of the KVBC chose Choisya White Dazzler as their favourite.

Colleges offering a wide range of agricultural and horticultural subjects have dropped and horticultural courses are being lost at a quite frightening rate.
