The 26th Hortiflorexpo IPM Beijing ended last week for Syngenta Flowers. Global Head of Syngenta Flowers Mark Schermer and Head of Flowers APAC Mallikarjun Mangrule both joined the Chinese team during the trade fair: Mallikarjun: "We were excited to welcome so many growers to our booth.

According to the Syngenta team one of the most eye-catching elements in the Syngenta Flowers booth was Sunfinity. They say: "Sunfinity is the next generation of sunflowers. It offers non-stop blooming and continuous flowers throughout the entire season."

Mr. Zhu Ping'an, agrower from Beijing Manyuanchuan, is the supplier of the Sunfinity plants that were on display in Beijing IPM.

The company emphasizes that this is the first year that Chinese growers were able to see Syngenta's new Impatiens interspecific Spectra grown in China. They say: "Visitors were impressed by how the company raises the bar for New Guinea Impatiens (NGI) through this product of interspecific breeding. This series has large flowers and excellent branching of the plants. Spectra is earlier to flower and has more flowers than standard NGIs."

Cora XDR
XDR stands for eXtreme Disease Resistance. "Cora XDR is highly resistant to the ten most virulent isolates of Phytophthora nicotianae that cause Phytophthora blight on annual vinca. This is why Cora XDR is called 'The flower with the power!' The Cora XDR wall of flower bags with large showy flowers was quite a hit in the show. Many visitors came to take pictures with the Cora XDR flower wall," the team adds.

Mr.Yu Zhangming and Mr. Sheng Renjun is from Shanghai Jincai. TheCora XDR flower bags were produced from them.

Sweet Duet
They conclude: "Another highlight on display that won over many visitors is the highly fragrant Sweet Duet. Kehao Shi – Business Manager China: "Sweet Duet has superior doubleness and better flower size compared to competition, with attractive color combinations. And the strong stems with good branching habit makes Sweet Duet a great option for late Spring and early Summer sales in larger containers and premium formats."
