Azanova (founded 2008) is a cooperative of 21 azalea growers who join forces for innovation in the azalea assortment. Azanova’s innovation is driven by quality and value for the consumer. Azanova collaborates with the Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research (ILVO), which has a long history of breeding azaleas. AIKO® was the first series of azaleas that were developed at ILVO and are marketed by Azanova cvba. In 2016 Azanova introduces the Toshi® series.
