Danziger Brings Nature’s Inspiration to Flower Trials

In our industry, we are inspired every day by the power, beauty and opportunities nature provides. At Danziger, that inspiration is driving our business for 2024.

“We chose Breeding In Tune with Nature as our theme for 2024 for many reasons,” says Ori Danziger, deputy CEO. “It’s more than a catchphrase for us. We strive to create varieties that harness the power of nature. Our goal is to develop genetics that offer solutions powered by nature – including natural drought tolerance, lower input needs, and varieties that take less labor time to grow, all while still providing more and longer-lasting blooms. These benefits help growers, retailers and home gardeners.”

The theme also focuses on embracing the beauty of nature and its ability to create a connection to the world around us. Natural hues, lush foliage and vivid colors can help develop a mood in the garden. From creating calm in the chaos to adding a vibrancy and joy to our lives, plants offer an opportunity for creative expression.

Creativity Meets Science

Creativity is a driving force in Danziger’s breeding work too. Breeders pair state-of-the-art technologies with their own creative drive. “Part of the act of cultivation is to take varieties found in nature and improve their properties,” says Amir Zucker, VP R&D at Danziger. “We take inspiration from nature and return to nature a better, more beautiful and stronger species, able to withstand extreme environmental conditions such as heat and drought.”
