Royal FloraHolland is organizing the online Novelties Parade this week (19-22 April). The Novelties Parade is organized in cooperation with trendwatcher Romeo Sommers. During this event 82 of the latest products in cut flowers, garden plants and terrace plants, houseplants and concepts will be shown digitally.
Smit Kwekerijen also joins the Novelties Parade in the category ‘houseplants’. Our submission in the Peperomia Burbella, an unique plant which is created by breeding. Botanically this plant is a Peperomia caperata hybride. The grey, round leaves with dark veins make this plant special. Do you want to know more about this novelty? Check the special plantpage here.
Participants of the Novelties Parade automatically join the race for the Glazen Tulp Award 2022. It is the Oscar of the horticulture and goes to the best market introduction in its category. There are different categories: Cut Flowers, Concepts, Green Houseplants, Flowering Houseplants and Garden Plants. Last year we became third in the race for the Glazen Tulp Award with our Begonia masoniana Mountain in the category ‘Houseplants’, an accomplishment we are proud of!
