“The Viola is the announcer of spring”, says Breeder Robbie Gieslink. Day in, day out, Robbie works on new and improved versions of ‘his’ Delta series, a process that can take up to 10 years. His newest addition: Delta Lavender Shades.
“This is the introduction of this season”, Robbie Gieslink points at large-flowered lilac and purple violas. “The Delta Lavender Shades. I think it is a very fresh, modern color.” The greenhouse is a colorful sea of violas: burgundy to white, large flowered viola x wittrockiana to the small-flowered viola cornuta.
Keep it big
The Delta series consists of large-flowered plants in an almost infinite range of colors. A series which became Robbie’s responsibility about thirteen years ago. “My forerunner Martien Gutter has made Delta big and I have the honor to keep it big.”
