How to continue after a great success? That can be a challenge. G-Rose, a Korean rose breeder seem to succeed. Their variety Deep Purple – pronounced just like the band – was a big hit. They sold over 4 million plants of the thornless rose. Last year they presented Bounty Way, a classic, lilac rose with a lot of potential as well.

Produced in the Netherlands
The breeder is proud to announce that Bounty Way is grown by Van der Hulst Rozenkwekerijen, a Dutch grower. “This is a big step for us”, says Charlie Jeong, marketing director at G-Rose. “The Netherlands is a premium country when it comes to floriculture.”

G-Rose started producing cut roses 25 years ago. They work with Dümmen Orange as their agent for over 10 years.
The lilac Bounty Way is a nice combination with Deep Purple.
High price at the auction
Van der Hulst produces Bounty Way on nearly one hectare. The roses are being sold on the action in Naaldwijk and Aalsmeer. According to Charlie the price is higher than average. “The fact that our rose is being sold in the Netherlands has a huge meaning to us.”
