The rhododendron simsii Hortinno® Magisnow Winter Beauty® by Hortibreed NV based in Lochristi, Belgium, won two awards at the IPM international horticultural trade fair in Essen: after winning the “IPM Novelty 2020” award in the category “Flowering indoor plant”, it was also elected the most popular novelty by the public.
“This year, Hortibreed is celebrating its 20th anniversary. We couldn’t imagine a nicer birthday present,” General Manager Stefan Laridon declares. For him, the award is priceless appreciation of the ten years of intensive breeding that preceded the new product.
