December is coming rapidly, and soon, many houses will be transformed in the Christmas spirit. Flowers also play an important role in creating an extra warm and cozy interior for the holidays. Especially for this period, Kordes has bred its Con Amore rose, with a bright and warm red color. "The flowers have a long vase life and they open beautifully for an optimal experience. So for a loving Christmas: CON AMORE (“with love”)," the breeders say.
Two growers who grow the Con Amore roses in the Netherlands are Van den Berg RoseS in Delfgauw and Van der Hulst Rozenkwekerijen in Meterik. They confirm and emphasize some important benefits in growing this variety: relatively low energy input, less sensitivity for diseases like mildew, and a favorable labor requirement.
