From Thursday 21 March to 12 May, it’s time! Keukenhof in Lisse (NL) heralds spring with the 75th opening of the world’s most beautiful spring park. Grower collective Sunsation® contributes with a colourful collection of sunny potted sunflowers to the presentation of great diversity within the international show window of Dutch floriculture.

Those longing some extra sunshine can indulge themselves at Keukenhof! Alongside the countless spring blooms, inspiration gardens and flower shows, our Sunsation® potted sunflowers once again have a wonderful spot within the park this season. Heleen Valstar’s team has created a colourful presentation starring Sunsation® in a prominent location in the Willem-Alexander pavilion.

Louis Kester (Commercial Director of Evanthia): “The cooperation with Keukenhof offers us a great stage to bring our own genetics as well as the growers of our products to the attention of a broad international audience. We are hopeful that this year, we will also be able to make personal contact again with visitors from the Middle East and Asia – China in particular, who have had the opportunity to visit the park to a lesser extent in recent years.”

Sunsation® potted sunflowers are known for abundant colour and variety, with richly flowering multi-flower types and variegated, lemon and golden yellow varieties. Spring also marks the start of our potted sunflower sales season. From the beginning of April to the beginning of September, Sunsation® growers supply the market with different varieties of Sunsation®. With these, we bring colourful rays of sunshine in and around the house early in the season. In pretty containers and pots on the terrace, balcony or patio, they combine well with other flowering plants and greenery. After frost, you can also plant them outdoors to add sunny colour to flowerbeds and borders.

You can visit Keukenhof until 12 May 2024. Order your tickets online via the Keukenhof website.

NEW this season: Sunsation® Compact!

A more responsible choice when it comes to potted sunflowers: Sunsation® Compact. This is because the genetically compact Sunsation® varieties (Yellow and Lemon) are grown without PGR or high EC levels. This results in balanced, stress-free potted sunflowers, without chemical residues of growth regulators. And this is clearly reflected in the healthy, smooth fresh green leaves. Sunsation® Compact is available for the first time this season via CM Kester, Adrichem Potplanten and Kwekerij Het Loo.
