Nico Grootendorst, Dutch breeding company Evanthia:
"Brassicas in Bogota: "Great area for bright colors"

Caught the eye of visitors at Proflora
At the Proflora, mid October in Colombia, Evanthia was more than pleased to see how one of its brokers, Guaqetta Trading, presented Evanthia Ornamental Cabbage Empire series in a superb way. "Cut brassicas for mixed and straight bouquets caught the eye of many visitors. The flower's diversity of appearances and colors made this flower stand out."

Evanthia Empire series
The brassicas that were on display at the Proflora are part of Evanthia's Empire series, which consists of 12 varieties. The leaves of the brassica in this series are hard and strong and stand out by their round or pointed leaves. Normally due to its 'smell' with many consumers Classic Ornamental Brassica has a short vase life. According to Grootendorst, the Empire Series of Evanthia stands out due to the lack of that negative experience. "Scientific research at the Research Centre at Royal FloraHolland has resulted that the bacteria life on a stem of the Empire Series in comparison to the classic Ornamental Cabbage is 90% less. This thanks to an extensive Evanthia breeding program. The vase life of the Empire series is scientifically proven to be much longer. At the Proflora Exhibition, the Empire series had a warm welcome. Lots of visitors enjoyed it."
