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.
Enrico will be loved throughout the entire chain. Thanks to its stability and uniform, compact plant habit, this cutting-raised winner is very easy to grow in the greenhouses. The flowers do not close in the dark or in cool conditions, which offers real benefits at retail level. Consumers will love Enrico’s longevity and multitude of double flowers. Enrico, the next generation in Osteospermum.
