23 Novelties to Present!
Groen-Direkt will shortly hold its annual Autumn Fair. Their range of late summer and autumn plant material is unique to Europe.
This outstanding fair attracts a high % from outside the Netherlands, from other European countries and those even further afield.
Successful Market Introduction
Around 23 novelties will be presented this August. Groen-Direkt has selected the plants in question for their great added value in relation to the existing range.
They are also all available in sufficient numbers for a successful market introduction. The series of novelties is not necessarily a botanically or commercially based selection!
The plants will be presented at the Autumn Fair, from 21 until 23 August. Fair visitors will be invited to vote for their favourite novelty. The winner will be announced on the final day.
Leucothoe 'Dark Diamond'
One example of the novelties is Leucothoe 'Dark Diamond' (‘BLULE1801’ PBR).This is a steady, compact variety. The foliage colours from green in the summer to shiny, dark brown/red in the autumn.
In the winter the plant becomes a deeper red. Due to the low height ( 40 to 60 cm) ‘Dark Diamond’ is extremely suitable for borders. This plant will be introduced at Groen-Direkt by About Plants Zundert B.V.
Both the Groen-Direkt and Plantarium fairs will be open on the same 3 days at the Hazerswoude-Dorp location in Boskoop.
