Begonia semperflorens F1 Fiona Red

Breeder: Takii
show in:

Year: 2019
Colour: Red

Awards: Gold Medal, Novelty

Begonia semperflorens F1 Fiona Red bred by Takii Japan is a powerful colour blast not only in gardens or landscapes, but also in containers. This semi-double type presents strong, upright blooming flowers in radiant red. Fiona Red is self-cleaning and provides continuous colour throughout the summer until the first frost.

A Gold Medal signifies a breakthrough in breeding. This award is only given to varieties that truly excel in innovation, beauty, use and overall performance in the Fleuroselect trials. The jury scored this winner highly for floriferousness and innovation and clearly sees the commercial potential of this new variety. Fiona Red is therefore awarded with a Gold Medal for 2019.

Calendula officinalis Calexis Orange

Breeder: Van Hemert & Co
show in:

Year: 2019
Colour: Orange with dark centre

Awards: Gold Medal, Novelty

Van Hemert & Co. has succeeded in breeding a dwarf Calendula for commercial growers. Calexis Orange presents a brand new flower shape and its beautiful double cactus flowers with rolled petals in a striking orange surround the contrasting dark brown centre. Calendula is a hardy annual, and hardened-off plants will survive some light frost, in winter or early spring.

A Gold Medal symbolises a genuine breakthrough in breeding. The Fleuroselect jury highly appreciated Van Hemert’s breeding performance in achieving a unique cactus shaped flower on a compact plant with excellent growing performance and therefore awards Calexis Orange with a Gold Medal for 2019.

Dahlia x hybrida Dalaya Amba

Breeder: Selecta one
show in:

Year: 2019
Colour: Dark red with black centre

Awards: Gold Medal, Novelty

After winning a Gold Medal for Dalaya Yogi in 2013, Selecta one’s expertise in Dahlia breeding is recognised again for the latest addition in the Dalaya series: Amba. With its large, semi-double dark red flowers and attractive black centre, Amba is really the mother of garden meditation. Stunning in borders, this new Dahlia also looks fantastic in pots and containers.

A Gold Medal stands for a true breakthrough in breeding and Dalaya Amba fits the bill. The Fleuroselect jury was highly impressed by the strikingly large semi-double dark red flowers and darker bronze foliage. The variety branches well and has shorter flower stems. This all makes it a worthy Gold Medal winner!

Osteospermum ecklonis Enrico

Breeder: Florensis
show in:

Year: 2019
Colour: Cream-white

Awards: Gold Medal, Novelty

Flowers forever, that was Dalina’s goal when selecting for this magnificent double cream-white Osteospermum. Compared to similar double Osteos, Enrico displays a true abundance of blooms which flower much longer throughout the season. Suited for a cooler climate like Northern Europe, Enrico will look outstanding in containers or in the bed.

Outstanding new breeding, that’s what Fleuroselect is looking for in the Gold Medal trials. With a total result of 17 in 20, Enrico scores exceptionally high in growing performance, innovation, wow factor, floriferousness and flowering season. The Fleuroselect jury is therefore proud to offer a Gold Medal to this magnificent innovation in Osteospermum.
