During IPM, BEST-select will present the latest Rhododendron addition: ‘Choco & Pink‘. The red-purple young shoots contrast beautifully with the dark brown leaves. This new product catches the eye thanks to the abundance of flowers for which it was rewarded with a silver medal during the latest edition of Plantarium.
This variety that likes acidic soil grows up to three metres high. From May on, the flowers coloured dark pink to pink with Bordeaux-coloured marks appear. The dark brown leaves and young purple shoots make sure 'Choco & Pink' catches the eye. The 'Choco & Pink' is currently available from Calle-Plant, which grows this protected novelty.

New at Denis-Plants
Denis-Plants BVBA is a Belgian horticultural company specialising in young plants for indoors and perennials that for years already has focussed on delivering high-quality products for the garden or in pots. For the 2020 season, Denis-Plants is introducing a new range of Salvia microphylla, in collaboration with Belgian breeders who specialise in fresh colour combinations and strong plants.
The cuttings for the new Salvia microphylla collection are pruned up to 3 times, which results in fuller plants with lots of flowers. In this way the customer can enjoy a plant that flowers beautifully from April to October. The lush sea of flowers is a delight to see and an oasis of nectar for pollinators. For the 2020 season, Denis-Plants has a dozen new types on offer. Discover them on www.denis-plants.com or at IPM 2020: Hall 2, stand D30.

New at Dataflor
During IPM Essen, Dataflor will present its completely new, plastic-free concept for strawberry plants ‘ZERO PLASTIC’.
For example, the pot is replaced by a biodegradable jiffy pot, the label by a paper/cardboard version and the tray by a completely recyclable paper/cardboard pulp version. The strawberry plants themselves meet all the requirements of the organic regulations.
The product range consists of seven varieties, of which four are permanent. In this way, Dataflor offers a range throughout the season. For this product line, Dataflor looked back at older varieties with good scores relating to resistance to disease, fast rooting and, naturally, full flavour.
With this product line, Dataflor is aiming at the conscious consumer. The range is being marketed via garden centres. Dataflor also offers banners that offers optimum support for the new range at the garden centre.

New from Leybaert:
In the spring of 2019, Leybaert expanded its collection with a new, revolutionary variety: the BerryBux®. This new product is a credit to its name. Both the leaves and growth of this resistant Vaccinium angustifolium makes one think of Box, but with one major difference: the added value of the compact BerryBux® lies in the abundance of its edible blue berries. In April this novelty makes an impression thanks to the sea of white flowers.
Since the plants do well in an ornamental pot, they are suitable for the balcony or patio. The attractive shape of the BerryBux® makes it possible to not only keep them in pots but also to plant them outdoors as a delicious hedge of berries along the pavement.
