De Ruiter's Big Five concept has been sustained by the breeder for the better part of the year following a succesful run of the initial Big Five reds. During the Naivasha Horticultural Fair held 21-22 September, De Ruiter had a beautiful presentation of the big fives in Yellow, Red, Pink, Orange and White.
The De Ruiter Big Fives include:
Red: Rhodos, Ever Red, Cupido, Red Kamala & Spectre
Yellows: Basanti, Tribute, Solaire, Sonrisa & Sunny Day
Oranges: Comanche, Royal Flush, Orange Crush, Oranda & Tropical Amazone
Pinks: Opala, Lovely Rhodos, Wham, Roslyn & Pink Rhodos
Whites: Proud, Summit, Miss Blanca, Snow Bliss & Uzuri
The slides below show the big fives in all the five colors as displayed at the Naivasha Show.
