Big, bigger, biggest

We are proud to introduce a new series to our range: Callistephus Buttons. The blue, white and pink flowers thrive in our Kenyan flower fields, producing stems of up to 80 centimetres. Callistephus is also known as 'China aster'. Compared to the current China asters, the Buttons series has larger flowers. The flower size of the main flower can reach up to 6 cm in diameter.


The series is bred by Sakata. Familiar name? That could be right! Our Campanula Champion series comes from the same laboratory. Sakata has more than a hundred years of experience in developing quality genetics for bedding plants, potted plants and cut flowers. So this extension of our collaboration could not be long in coming. 


For now, we are growing the Callistephus Buttons series at one farm; our Bondet Farm in Kenya. But don't be fooled, production is in full swing! The series is available every day, year-round, at Royal FloraHolland Aalsmeer, in 60, 70 and 80 cm.
