“Elegance and resistance in one.” With these words Graines Voltz submitted Rosa ‘Wonder5’ LillyRose to the new plants competition Innovert of trade fair Salon du Végétal which will be held this week (June 19-21) in Nantes (France). “Accompanied by attractive point-of-sale communication, this dwarf rose seeks to be an all rounder for consumers looking for something that is attractive and authentic.”

Gypsophila-effect

“LillyRose is characterised by a multitude of small, soft pink flowers that will seduce consumers with their grace and lightness reminiscent of the gypsophila-effect. Non-fruit-producing variety flowering throughout the summer, it is disease-resistant and its hardy nature makes it a good perennial.”

According to Graines Voltz LillyRose is sublime in small pots (11 cm), as well as flower boxes, mixed tubs (2 liter) or planted in beds.
