Last Friday, Imara won the TASPO Award of the Year for Best Breeding Product. This is the second award for Imara after it was awarded for Best Ornamental Plant Introduction – Bedding by Horticulture Week Business Award in London in June this year. The gardener’s favorite is back – again!
TASPO honours the best projects and companies in the industry in a variety of categories; products, companies, marketing and entrepreneur of the year.
Breeder Ton Groot is very excited with this recognition: “Due to the downy mildew break out in 2000 a new phase in the breeding of impatiens walleriana started. An important product and market for us and therefore we strongly focused on creating a solution for both growers and consumer as soon as possible. After years of intensive breeding IMARA was proudly introduced in 2018: The first downy mildew resistant impatiens walleriana on the market!”
