Par 3 novembre 2020 No Comments

With over 400 exhibitors from across the globe, Farwest is one of the most significant green industry shows in Portland. This October, three plants and four runners-up were chosen as People’s Choice Award winners for the 2020 New Varieties Showcase.

Even though this year’s Farwest Show couldn’t take place due to the COVD-19 pandemic, the New Varieties Showcase selections were displayed on, where voters were able to choose their favourites online.

And guess what the three highest-voted plants were?

● The first place: went to Concept Plants’ ipomoea ‘Treasure Island Makatea‘ (sweet potato)
– the world’s first edible ornamental. Bred by Louisiana State University.

● The second place: went to Concept Plants’ Dryopteris ‘Jurassic Gold

● And the third place: went to our very own clematis ‘Little Lemons
– hybridized by J. van Zoest BV.

What an accomplishment!
