bred and selected with temperatures at the lower limit

Jollie's fuchsias family is growing

"For years, Brandkamp's Jollies Fuchsia Line has been a guarantee for easy-to-cultivate, attractive fuchsia varieties and constant innovation. As a result, Jollies Fuchsia is well known in every national market in Europe. But you can't rest on your laurels," emphasizes CEO Hubert Brandkamp, ​​"the breeding work on the Jollies Fuchsia series is ongoing and intensive."

Four new varieties will be added for the 2022/2023 season. "Two of them reinforce the segment of petit varieties. These small-flowered, early-blooming mass bloomers are enjoying increasing popularity."

Jollies Petit Brionne

Jollies Petit Brionne has soft pink/lavender single flowers."With its slightly overhanging growth, it is an all-rounder. It can be cultivated in pots and in hanging baskets and can be used by the end customer anywhere from balcony boxes to hanging baskets."

Jollies Petit Lens

Jollies Petit Lens is very similar in growth in the classic red/blue combination. "Jollies Petit Lens has a lot of flowers that appear early and cover the whole plant."

Jollies Madiran

Jollies Madiran is added to the standard range, he explains. "Densely double flowers of a contrasting purple/white, set on a good habit. With its habit, it is not only suitable for the usual culture in a 12cm pot but also for containers with three plants."

Jollies La Grande Marche

In the Jollies La Grande area, the new Marche variety with its large, elegant white/pink flowers provides further nuances, he adds. "For such a large-flowered variety, early flowering and initially rather upright, later growing slightly overhanging, it is very versatile."

Last but not least, Brandkamp points out that they have been breeding and selecting fuchsias with temperatures at the lower limit (5-8° Celsius) for years. Clones that don't play along or show that they are very sensitive to botrytis don't have a chance and are discarded. "It is now evident that we were right," says Sales Manager Jürgen von den Driesch, "because the issue of energy consumption will definitely have a high priority in the coming years."
