Ideal stem, leaf, and spike proportions
Efficient and productive
Strong vase life
Nova Zembla is part of the Floreals product group. This group consists of varieties with large spikes (more than 50% of the stem is made up of spike), a compact length, and slim leaves below the lowermost bud. These varieties are also selected for vase life. In production, gladioli from the Floreals group are efficient and productive, thanks to a relatively short forcing time, uniform flowering, and a low loss percentage. Nova Zembla is resistant to disease, heat, and bright sunlight. It’s a variety with a strong resistance to Burkholderia, stronger than Amsterdam and Essential, but less strong than Piet Mohlen. Nova Zembla's spike length and looks make it stand out. It is the second most popular white variety in North-West Europe, just after Essential. The photos of this variety will be supplemented and improved next summer with the flowers from our show garden for a clearer and more beautiful image.
