Dümmen Orange is showing a unique range of new products and retail concepts in its German and Dutch show gardens this year. Highlights include additions to the I'CONIA begonia range; the new Calibrachoa series Tik Tok and the extraordinarily reliable Calla variety Gold Label. The show gardens in Rheinberg (Germany) and De Kwakel (the Netherlands) are open throughout the summer. From week 24 to September customers can come by appointment to get a good idea of the current range of annuals, perennials and flowering pot plants, as well as the latest retail concepts.
I´CONIA: new Bacio series
The new Bacio series is part of Dümmen’s well-known I´CONIA Begonia range . There are four single colors available: Orange, Salmon, White and Peach, all with an impressively large number of medium-sized double blooms and a long flowering window. Their compact, round growth make them perfect for cultivation in 12-14 cm pots.
New Calibrachoa series: Tik Tok
The new Calibrachoa series, Tik Tok, captures everyone's attention with its combination of a dark ring around the center of the flower and yellow star tapering to the leaves. Four dazzling colors are available for launch: Rose, Amethyst, Chrystal and Blue. The new varieties are early, day-neutral and ideal for producing in 12-14 cm pots or hanging baskets.
Gold Label: exceptionally reliable
Gold Label is an exceptionally reliable Calla variety and a beautiful plant for production in various pot sizes. The above-average number of intense yellow flowers are medium-sized and beautifully formed. In addition, Gold Label is very fast-growing and shows uniformity in the greenhouse. The plant has a good shelf life, retains its beauty over a long period of time and ensures maximum enjoyment for the consumer.
The Confetti Garden concept is well-known for its reliability, assurance and innovation. All varieties in the mixes grow uniformly and their properties are perfectly coordinated. In addition to a large range of annuals, new mixes of perennials, pot chrysanthemums, kalanchoes and pot carnations are available now. In the latter segment, the new Confetti Garden Carnelia Wild Panther is a particular highlight.
The new Dahlia series, Novation, is available for launch in eight colors. With large double blooms, an extensive flowering window and good branching habit, Novation White, Yellow, Salmon, Red, Ruby, Pink, Lavender Bicolor and Pink Bicolor are a true inspiration. These early flowering varieties with strong colors and good garden performance make for an attractive sales proposition. They are perfect for producing in 10.5–13 cm pots and are resistant to powdery mildew.
