Gold Prize Winners at GrootGroenPlus
In the 2019 Novelty Awards, held at GrootGroenPlus, three were issued in the Gold Category.
These included Juniperus communis 'Lemon Carpet' which was presented by Schrauwen-Moerings vof. This is a uniformly grown, healthy-looking plant. It produces handsome foliage colours, not spectacularly innovative, but with a great appearance.
Pyracantha coccinea 'Red Star'
Pyracantha coccinea 'Red Star' from Hoogeveen Plants BV, also won a Gold award for this introduction. Thoroughly and skillfully pruned, these plants carry lots of fruits. Not so thorny, which is an advantage over other varieties. Visually strong and worthy of its Gold status!
