At Dutch breeder Van den Bos Flowerbulbs in Honselersdijk this year, three new freesia varieties will be available. Van den Bos’s freesia team has been breeding, reviewing and propagating these three varieties in the previous years. The breeder describes Golden Passion (single yellow) as one of the bulkiest freesias in their range. Its characteristics are: high and heavy production per plant. Golden Passion Notable is for its lengthy spike, full of golden buds.
Double to triple white Belleville Double is fast and productive, and appealing because of its attractive smell. According to Van den Bos Belleville has a beautiful bud presentation. “Buds are perfectly white and remain closed for a very long time. Once they start to flower, they look and smell gorgeous.”
White Pearl is single white and is characterised by heavy sideshoots and a high production. “The brilliant white flower is beautiful, even when the bud is still closed”, Van den Bos emphasizes.
