Fleuroselect presents the 2020 Gold Medal winners. The winners are Leucanthemum x superbum Madonna (PanAmerican Seed), Silene pendula Sibella Carmine (Van Hemert & Co) and Tropaeolum minus Baby Rose (Takii). Each one of these breeding breakthroughs obtained an outstanding score on innovation, beauty and garden performance.
A Gold Medal is awarded to a breakthrough in breeding. According the jury Madonna is a highly improved Shasta Daisy from seed that oﬀers an alternative to the vegetative varieties. Thanks to the improved uniformity in height and habit, the jury members were unanimous in handing out the Medal.
The jury was highly impressed with the intense colour, bright semi-double ﬂowers and early ﬂowering of Sibella Carmine.
The jury appreciated the very compact habit, the innovative colour and also clearly saw the potential of Baby Rose as a pot item, therefore awarding a Medal for 2020.
The winners are available in 2019 to the growers and will be for sale at retail level in 2020.
