Range of flowers
Voort Chrysanten grows a wide variety of chrysanthemums, but this week we focus on their PIP range. This range consists of disbudded chrysanthemums. Disbudded? These are large flowered chrysanthemums. When the plant is young, all the sidebuds (flowers) are removed. By doing this, all the energy from the root goes to the one flower at the top. This creates a huge (disbudded) flower that can be about 7 to 9 cm in diameter. In the PIP Chrysanthemum you can see dark stripes in the petals. This gives the flower an exclusive character. PIP chrysanthemums are available in pink, salmon, light pink, purple, red, and orange. The Chrysanthemum PIP is grown only at Voort Chrysanten.
