Zebra Blue F1 brings blue into the garden
16 November 2010
Zebra Blue F1 is a compact primula with blue & white striped petals: a colour combination which represents a first in the primula range. Rudy Raes Bloemzaden n.v. will be proudly presenting this newcomer at IPM Essen 2011 and Salon du Végétal where it will be competing for the title of ‘nouveauté Végétale’. Zebra Blue is the first primula to bear the Fleuroselect "Approved Novelty" label for 8.5 years.
With a long flowering period and good Botrytis resistance, one can enjoy this striking spring bloomer for a long period. Zebra Blue F1 is a compact primula which grows to a height of 10 to 12cm. The blue & white striped flowers with their yellow core have a diameter of 4 to 5cm and stand out beautifully against the dark-green rosette. This unique newcomer prefers a sunny location and thrives best if the soil is kept nice and moist.
For 2011, there are already 100,000 plants being grown at various European producers. Next year, there will be 500,000 plants available on the market.
