Clematis Little Lemons best Dutch novelty

0

The Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society has voted Clematis Little Lemons as best novelty of 2019 in the Netherlands.

Members of the Dutch society (KVBC) could vote for 9 nominated new hardy nursery stock novelties. Last year they all won a golden medal during trade show trials or field trials from the KVBC.

Clematis ‘Zo14100’ (Little Lemons) won the top award. This variety from Boskoop Clematis nursery J. van Zoest is a breakthrough in Clematis breeding, says the KVBC. Because Little Lemons is non-climbing, it grows very compact and it blooms abundantly.

Last year Little Lemons was voted best new variety of Plantarium 2019, the international trade show for hardy nursery stock in Boskoop.

Other nominated plants

The other nominated plants for the annual election were:

Buddleja ’SRPBUD989’ (Summerlounge Blue Sarah)

Clematis ’ST17333’ (Multi Pink)

Hydrangea arborescens ’NCHA3’ (Ruby Annabelle)

Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Hocomagicevo’ (Magical Revolution)

Hydrangea paniculata ‘HYLV02’ (Whitelight)

Juniperus communis ’Lemon Carpet’

Prunus laurocerasus ’Zsófi’ (Sofia)

Pyracantha coccinea ’Red Star’
