The biggest tulip event...

Tulip cultivation in the Netherlands is in the spotlights for three days during the Tulip Trade Event! From 20 to 22 March 2019, exporters and breeders in the Netherlands are combining their open days. This makes the Tulip Trade Event an expanding and colourful display case for tulip cultivation. Over three days visitors can see the entire assortment in bloom, hear about which new trends and cultivation methods are becoming popular and catch up with their business relations.

The name speaks for itself; this graceful, up-facing, pink variety has large flowers and an average height of around 120-130 CM. It is a new promising variety which is suitable for cutflower production and gives enough flowers..
