Gaultheria procumbens ‘SpecGP11’ Gaulthier Pearl was one of the novelties at this week held FloraHolland Aalsmeer Trade Fair 2015 and is also announced by the flower auction PlantPrimeur. Gaulthier Pearl with big white berries is an introduction of Special Plant Zundert. The nursery positions itself as a Gaultheria specialist with decades of experience. “The new variety derives from a breeding program which we started about seven years ago. Gaulthier Pearl is one of the first results from that program”, says Johan Jansen from this nursery. “A pink variety is on its way.”
The supply at the flower auction FloraHolland is limited. Next year larger numbers can be expected. Plants are available through FloraHolland Commercie.
