PanAmerican Seed Hosts Pansy & Viola Trials
The wide assortment of cool-season products from PanAmerican Seed was fully on display at our Pansy & Viola Trial, 2-6 March, at our Venhuizen facilities. We welcomed product managers, breeders, growers, marketing teams and media members to the greenhouses to compare genetics and ask our experts about new and future varieties.
Some key series on display were Cool Wave® spreading pansies, Sorbet® XP and Sorbet® viola, Frizzle Sizzle and Frizzle Sizzle Mini pansy, and our latest addition Quicktime™ viola. Many great conversations occurred with our guests, including discussions on breeding goals and new breeding achievements. Colour opportunities and the trends and tastes of Europe, the West and other regions were also topics on the minds of our visitors.
PanAmerican Seed Sales Manager Jeroen Star told FloralDaily, "We always keep improving our existing assortment. We are happy with our current series, but we will continuously work on improving the plant habits, colours and timing." Read the full recap of the event from FloralDaily here.
In addition to viewing the trials, we also took part in a fun and creative activity “stamping” pansy and viola flowers onto reusable bags. Take a look at some of our photos below!
