The Red Naomi rose is his favourite because of its great qualities, and Arie talks passionately about this unique specimen: “She is the rose with perfect red colour and a soft velvety shade; besides, the Red Naomi is the only large-flowered red rose that stimulates the senses. No other red rose on the market has more petals than the Red Naomi has!”
This rose, that was introduced to the flower market in 2006, does not only appeal to Arie’s imagination. The Red Naomi has grown to become the most important red rose grown in the Netherlands, in the top segment for red roses. “Red Naomi has it all: a long stem, a great bud size, few thorns and not insignificant: a particularly long vase life. For more than two weeks you can enjoy her full bud with large red, slightly fragrant petals,” says Arie.
