Japan: Merit Award for Mystery Lady Aster series

At the Flower Trials Japan 2015, the aster series Mystery Lady of the Danish breeder Nursery Raahöj, won a garden merit award in week 40. This prize was awarded by a famous Japanese Garden designer.

The Mystery Lady Asters are characterized by their filled flowers in bright, warm colors and fine and strong sturdy plants with long durability. "Our asters can last up to six weeks," says Malene Juhl Jensen breeder of the Mystery Lady and owner of Nursery Raahöj in Denmark where they also grow the aster.

Next to the these factors which make the plant attractive for the customer, cultivating the Mystery Lady Asters also has benefits for growers. According to Jensen, it saves costs and labor for growers. "A regular aster needs three cuttings to be cultivated, but Mystery Lady Aster only needs one." Currently, they have 3 varieties that can be grown with 1 cutting. "It is one of our goals in breeding to find more varieties that can be produced with only 1 cutting," says Jensen.

Nursery Raahöj will also be present at the IFTF in Vijfhuizen, the Netherlands and can be visited at stand: B3.28.
