Last Thursday afternoon, the new light blue freesia ‘Leila’ was officially sprinkled at our company. A competition has been organized via the Facebook page of the Penning Freesia store to come up with a name for a new freesia variety. A jury of Penning Freesia has selected the winning name ‘Leila’ from the many entries.
The creator of the name, Linda Dessing and her partner were invited to our company to sprinkle the variety. The variety has a light blue color and is distinguished by the speed of cultivation, the suitability for year-round cultivation and the particularly good smell for this colour. The variety will be supplied to the FloraHolland auction from this week and the plant material of this variety will be traded by our cooperation partner VandenBos Freesia.
The new variety will also be for sale in our store in the upcoming weeks.
