The Milkshake™ Mums

The Milkshake™ Mums
Innovation

The new Milkshake™ Mums have striking colours, a compact growing habit and are a true family. Their names refer to fruity milkshake flavours: Coconut, Banana, Papaya, Cherry, Strawberry and Raspberry.

Because all the different Milkshakes™ are colour mutations all colours have a similar growth cycle with uniform plants that bloom simultaneously. They need little or no growth regulation and have a response time of about six weeks, this makes growing these beauties even more attractive.

Besides these great family characteristics, their compact shape makes it possible to save on transportation costs. Royal Van Zanten recommend to grow Milkshake™ into pot sizes up to 14 to 15 centimetre. Milkshake™ Mums are very flexible and are therefore easy to handle and pack.

Not only growers are enthusiastic about this new concept. Milkshake™ also has great features for retailers, such as a great shelf-life and a beautiful and equal blooming experience for the consumer.

All-in-all the new Milkshake™ family is THE new compact multiflora family.

Hermosa comes in two different colours: white and yellow. Both varieties are easy to grow, they grow uniform and blossom evenly. Hermosa pot chrysanthemums are compact growing varieties with a response time of 6,5 weeks. This offers growers an efficient and cost effective cultivation.

Hermosa has an excellent shelf live. Consumers can enjoy the beautiful and unique flowers in their interior as well as in their garden. Plants can be used indoor all your year round and outdoor during the pot chrysanthemum season.
