In the category Asiatics and LA’s Vletter den Haan scored high. The bright yellow Pratolo® was undisputed winner in this category.
The pink OT Tabledance® reached the highest score of all OT’s what made this variety the best OT Hybrid for 3 years in a row.
In category Longiflorum / LO the battle for the first place was exciting. Remarkably, this year more lilies in this group were offered for judging then previous years, demonstrating that de breeding in Longiflorums is still offering exciting results. Mak Breeding reached the third and second position with White Walhalla® and the upright Illusive® but, with a minor difference, the variety Watch Up of Marklily became first in this competition.
