YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE FOR THE FOLLOWING SELECTIONS
Once every month or so, we will post one of our selections in our 'showroom'
Here you will find extra information, like forcing time, flowers per bulb size, length of stem and more
Forcing time is difficult to measure as our greenhouse doesn't have a minimal temperature setting, and therefor as a reference, the Oriental variety 'Le Reve' is planted as well
Under normal circumstances 'Le Reve' needs about 75 days to flower after planting, so in that regard we can figure out the forcing time of the seedling in our 'Showroom.
In case you want to have additional information about the selection on this page, please send us your question('s) to our page 'Contact Us'

Before 2011, this lily was 2 years in a flat from seed and an additional 2 years in our field before selected to do the forcing tests in our greenhouse.
That makes the age of this bulb at least 12 years
Forcing time is a bout 90 days and the length of the stem is approximately 125 cm
The size of 12/14 will give at least 2 up to 4 flowers, which don't fade at all
This hybrid deserves a spot on this Page

Selection# 601 is a very strong lily, which can be grown without any problem either in the field ot greenhouse
Never any visible scorch or leave burn
Although the forcing time is relatively short - about 83 to 85 days - it still gives a good bud count for smaller sized bulbs
Size 12/14 (cm) can give 3 to 5 flowers on its stem
The length is about 135 cm
This selection deserves to be in our showroom
Our Selection for the month of November is: Oriental Pot Selection# 434

A beauty on everyone's table
The ones in the picture are forced like the Oriental selections for cut with no growth hormone or the alike
Forcing time about 75 days

Our opinion is that the bulb size of 12/14 (cm) will give 2 to 3 flowers.

The day before flowering
2nd day after opening
4th. day after opening
Selection# 512 was selected in the blooming season of 2015.

The forcing time is very fast; about the same time as 'Le Reve' ( 75 days)
The length of the stem is about 125 cm and our opinion is that the bulb size of 12/14 (cm) will give 2 to 3 flowers.

2d day after opening
5th day after opening
In our opinion, Sel# 776 is one of the best if not the very best white Oriental so far

A forcing time of about 83 to 85 days under normal circumstances
This seedling is very elegant and has nice bud color on a stem of about 50"
