Plantarium Press Awards
Pottburri and Cercis canadensis 'Carolina Sweetheart' landed the Plantarium Press Awards following the judging in Boskoop.
Cercis canadensis 'Carolina Sweetheart', submitted by Joh. Stolwijk & Zn. from Boskoop, won their Award in the category Garden, balcony and patio plants.
The Cercis canadensis 'Carolina Sweetheart' was a favourite of many of the judges. It is a Cercis canadensis with spectacularly variegated foliage. The tree puts on a colour show in various seasons and its average size makes it an excellent tree for gardens.
In the Concepts category, the award went to Pottburri (above), submitted by F.N. Kempen from Mijndrecht. The jury was unanimous about Pottburri. This range of biodegradable pots respond to the demand for non-plastic products. Its catchy name and nice colour make this an appealing concept.
