Eleven plants have been nominated for the Show Your Colours Award IPM 2019.

The Show Your Colours Award IPM 2019 will be presented at 3pm on Thursday 24 January in the BIZZ Holland stand (hall 8, A40).

Corokia virgata ‘Maori Green’ & ‘Maori Silver’ (Addenda, NL)

Cyclamen persicum ‘Indiaka’ (div. kleuren) (Morel Diffusion SAS, F);  Dianthus ‘Pink Kisses’ (Selecta One, D); Hydrangea macrophylla x H.scandens  ‘French Bolero’ (Vegepolys, F);

Laurus nobilis ‘Feel Green’ kitchen bay tree (GOVA Decorum, NL); Lavandula intermedia ‘Phenomenal’ (Joh. Stolwijk & Söhne, NL); ‘Lucky Berry’ 4-month strawberry  (Diederk Heinje e.a.,D);

Rubus Mix  (Jungheim Boomkwekerijen, NL);

Wonder Tree fruit trees (Fruithof, NL).


Visitors will be invited to vote for their favourite before a professional jury assesses the plants and their stories. The combined votes will determine the winner.
