This month we focus on the 'Wheels of Wonder' Story and how Plantipp BV developed the 'Wow' factor.
Delosperma Jewel of the Desert
The Wheels of Wonder Delosperma was developed by Koichiro Nishikawa from FlorSaika. Koichiro is the same breeder of the first generation Delosperma Jewel of Desert.
Koichiro takes up the story. “I started this process in 23 years ago in Japan by breeding Delosperma. Now based in the Netherlands, I can produce new breeds throughout the year. Everything grows much faster here so my goal has been achieved!
Due to the efforts of Plantipp, the Delosperma 'Wheels of Wonder"- series are now available across the world.
Delosperma need to be planted in full sun. The type of soil is not important as long as the soil is very well drained. Delosperma hate wet feet, so do not spoil them too much.
The WoW series are multifunctional. This means you can use them as a groundcover, in a container on your patio or balcony and you can even use it as a hanging basket! Can you imagine how stunning this looks? A real WoW effect!
The WoW Delosperma flowers continuously. Consumers can easily take their holiday for a couple of weeks as they can survive without water for a long time. When you come back from holiday, the flowers will still be flourishing in the garden.
6 Bright Colours
The WoW series is available in 6 bright colours and attracts bees and butterflies. At night when the flowers are closed, they will look like candles. The next morning, your garden will come to life again!
