Dutch grower Johan van Velden from Honselersdijk showed the new Oriental lily Canaletto on the New Products Plaza of FloraHolland Trade Fair 2012, March 14-16. The New Products Plaza showcases a selection of new products that have recently come to market, as well as a selection of those just about to be launched. Canaletto, bred by lily breeder Gebr. Vletter & Den Haan in Rijnsburg, Netherlands, has a very intense, smooth pink colour. This variety keeps its colour during its vase life. The stem is very hard.
