Coreopsis 'Corusco Cream-Red': yet another Fleuroselect Gold Medal for Van Hemert & Co B.V.

January 2024

Looking for a distinctive, early-flowering plant to style your garden? Coreopsis Corusco Cream-Red from Van Hemert & Co is a true must-have for your garden. Showing many cream with burgundy flowers, this innovative dwarf variety is a very welcome addition to the existing Coreopsis range. Corusco Cream-Red is low-maintenance, attracts bees and butterflies and is drought tolerant. This new winner with striking colour combination and compact plant shape can be enjoyed as of early spring throughout summer. A Gold Medal winner symbolizes a breakthrough in breeding. Our judges praised the unique, eye-catching colour combination and the early flowering habit. This brand-new Coreopsis is not only suited for direct sowing, but also for easy production of young plants in pots and containers.

Fleuroselect Gold Medal for our Verbena 'Vanity'!

January 28, 2022

Today we learned that Fleuroselect has awarded our Verbena bonariensis ‘Vanity’ FSN (VERBDF) with a Gold Medal: 

“Thanks to its shorter stems, this Verbena bonariensis is clearly compacter than existing varieties. The tight flower clusters have a more intense purple-blue colour and bloom from mid-summer until autumn frost. Vanity offers a long flowering season, attracts bees and butterflies and spreads a subtle fragrance in the early morning and evening.

With its compact growing habit and deep flower colour, Vanity is a welcome addition to the market. This variety is suitable for pot plant production and does not require pinching or the use of PGR. Retailers can offer a continuously flowering Verbena bonariensis in a pot on the bench.

Vanity, a purple breeze for smaller green spaces

Primed seed is now available. Contact us for more information:
