Breeder Robbie Gieslink has the Latest ‘Design Viola’

“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.”
