IJsselstein — At the international trade fair IPM in Essen last week, two introductions by Plantipp were voted best in their category.
Pyracantha coccinea ‘Red Star’ PBR was winner in the category of woody plants. The jury was impressed by the beautiful red berries that stay on the plant for a long period. Also the fact that this Pyracantha survived the drought of last summer and that it is a beautiful indoor plant as well, scored points at the jury. ‘Red Star’PBR is found by Van der Sar Vermaat from ‘s-Gravenzande, the Netherlands.
In the category perennials Sempervivum Chick Charms® ‘Gold Nugget’PBR was declared winner. This Sempervivum has yellow with red flamed leaves in winter and is, according to the jury, the ideal beginners plant because it requires little maintenance but has a great ornamental value. Sempervivum Chick Charms® ‘Gold Nugget’PBR is found by breeder Chris Hansen from Zeeland, USA.
There were 58 entries in eight categories in total. Plantipp is extremely proud of the result of these two awards.
