Alstroemerias trends by Royal van Zanten
Last week you read about the Spray Alstroemeria Charmelia Bridesmaid. The Charmelia originates from the breeder Royal van Zanten. This week we will show you what’s new and in the making. But first we are looking back.
Going back in time with Royal van Zanten
In 1862 a small company started cultivating bulbs alongside potatoes on the ‘Zanderij van Six’. Gerrit Veldhuyzen van Zanten had a visionary outlook: at that time bulbs seemed to be the future. His pioneering spirit, perseverance and partiality for high quality have never left their business. It is the basis for their continuity and success.
Royal Van Zanten has a wide range of products: Liliums, Chrysanthemums, Tulipas and Alstroemerias. This week we will focus on their Alstroemeria breeding program. One of the most popular Alstroemerias is probably the white Alstroemeria Virginia, and what do you think about the red beauty Nadya? Both are bred by Royal Van Zanten. But also their new Intenz Pink was nominated for the Keukenhof Novelty Award 2016 and there is a lot more to come!
Back to the future!
Royal Van Zanten and Together2Grow are cultivating a new white Alstroemeria and she is a beauty! Perfect for the high-end market. Her name is Alstroemeria Misty Spring. She will be come available at OZ Export in about 7 to 8 weeks. There are also some changes in the Alstroemeria world: not only weight is important but the decorative value is getting more and more significant. Instead of her weight the true beauty of Misty Spring will really steal the show.
OZ Export is not just a flower export company, we have very experienced buyers for each floral segment. We are very proud that our Alstroemeria buyers are true experts and have an eye for new trends. We are closely involved with the breeding program by Royal Van Zanten. For example, last year we spotted and tested the Misty Springs and Red Delight. Both Alstroemerias will be introduced to the market in 2016.
Here is a small preview of some new flowers from the breeder’s greenhouse, enjoy!
