07.09.2018 - ISU Award for JELITTO PERENNIAL SEEDS


ISU Award for Echinacea 'Green Twister'


Suceeded in ISU Trial 2018 in Poland


The International Hardy Plant Union (ISU) is the organizer of a trial for new breedings of hardy perennials. At the ISU Summer Days 2018 in Poland 10 breeders sent in a total of 121 new perennials. An international commission examines the perennials for winter hardiness, vitality, growth and aesthetics. The Echinacea purpurea 'Green Twister' from JELITTO STAUDENSAMEN GmbH has convinced in trial and has been awarded the ISU Award.

An award of this kind is the successful completion of many years of breeding work. After the discovery of the seedling on a field of crops, the Echinacea was specifically bred to uniform growth and hardiness. The effort for a true seed strain is considerable large. Over a period of several years, suitable plants from constantly new sowings are valuated and selected in outdoor overwintering crops.

We are very happy after so many years of selection of Echinacea 'Green Twister' to receive the ISU Award of the International Hardy Plant Union.
