The prestigious Jan Goemans Trophy has been awarded at the annual Freesia-event, which takes place at the Keukenhof. This trophy is awarded every year to the most promising and best new freesia variety, in honor of Jan Goemans, a Dutch breeder living England, who was responsible for the breeding of approximately 90% of the freesia varieties in the past centuries. This year, Penning Freesia has been honored with the trophy for the variety Purple King.
Purple King is a sharply-coloured purple freesia with a strong, double flower. A much appreciated variety, by both cultivators and consuments that visit our shop.
