In cooperation with Decofresh Roses Group and grower Omang, hybridizer Dümmen Orange introduces Belle Katharina+, a full rose with a stormy heart in cream, soft pink and green.
Belle Katharina+ was created in 2014 in the greenhouses of Dümmen Orange. Within a year chain partner Decofresh Roses Group and the hybridizing experts of Dümmen Orange decided by mutual agreement to start a test phase because the rose showed such promise. The dark green of the leaves matches the light petals. And the ultimate surprise Belle Katharina+ has to offer, is a slightly irregular 'stormy heart'. Together with an excellent vase life and good results from transports and shipment trials all parties involved decided to let grower Omang in Kenya plant Belle Katharina+ at a height of 2000 metres for optimal results. Omang is one of the growers of Decofresh Roses Group, the rose will be traded exclusively by Decofresh Roses (www.decofresh.com) and is available as of now.
Danish florist Katharina Albrechtsen was given the honour to name the rose, as part of a Decofresh Roses sponsored award she won at IFTF 2017. "I love the shape and colours of the rose," Albrechtsen says. "And it's strong, just like me. So, it is a privilege that it now carries my name." There will be a live introduction of the rose in Denmark, Belle Katharina+ has a look that is highly popular in Scandinavian countries. That's why it will be used during the Danish Florists Championship, a special launch will be organised for 15 Swedish designers and the rose will be featured in trade magazine Bloomster.
