Three breeders highlighted

Kordes rozes (Kordana®): deutsche Gründlichkeit and beauty in a pot

This variety, created at the beginning of the nineteenth century, is the result of crossing between a dwarf Chinese rose and a polyanthus (multi-flowered) rose. The cordana rose gained a small growth from the former and an abundance of inflorescences from the latter. The name “Kordana” refers to the name of the grower: Wilhelm Cordes. Kordes Roses in Germany is still the breeder of the Kordana® varieties. 

The Kordana® Series are compact, upright, bushy plants. They are recognisable thanks to their glossy dark green leaves and clusters of lightly scented, double, red, pink, orange, yellow or white flowers.

In the Kordana® roses we distinguish the Classic: small-flowered and the Grande: large-flowered .

Poulsen Roser A/S: surprising varieties from Denmark 

Different collections, different looks. Poulsen Roser is a leading Danish breeder of a wide range of potted roses. Meet the four varieties we distribute.

Party®: a feast for the eyes. These richly flowering miniature roses in 7 cm pots remain beautifully compact. And yet a new flower bud appears every time. The small, dark-green leaves are in perfect proportion to the numerous, beautifully filled roses. The Party roses last a long time and their trendy look makes them a must-have for every rose lover.

With its range of large-flowered pot roses, the Victory® Collection conquers every rose lover. Suitable for 10.5 cm pots and available in a wide variety of colours, including some striking appearances. Indoors, they last a long time as a pot plant or in a larger bowl. 

The potted roses of the PatioHit® Collection shine in the house as well as outdoors or on the balcony. In their 13 cm pots, they immediately catch the eye. The glossy, deep green leaves contrast lushly with the large, brightly coloured flowers. PatioHit® pot roses are persistent. Moreover, they can take a beating. 

The pot roses from the Palace® Collection are distinguished by their majestic posture, their beautiful large double flowers. Ideal as plants for a spacious flower box (17 cm). They last a long time in a sheltered spot in the garden, for example on a terrace. So you can enjoy these rooted ‘bouquets’ for weeks.

Roses forever: infinite beauty from Denmark 

Danish breeder Roses forever is best known for Infinity® roses and Forever® roses. 

The Infinity® roses are revolutionary of their kind. They owe their slightly extravagant appearance to their large well-shaped flowers of up to 7 cm in diameter, in white and pink .  Infinity® roses are long-lasting. As much as five weeks or more they last. This is where their thick leaves and stems come into play. These prevent the plant from drying out. The roses thrive indoors and if you plant them between May and September they are hardy.

Besides potted roses, the horticultural company also grows Campanula and Schlumbergera, all spread over about 110,000 m2.

The company highly values sustainability. Thus, they are MPS, MPS GAP and MPS GRASP certified. Through focused product development work, they have developed innovative cultivation methods. Here, they use only natural growth promoters and effective micro-organisms, which strengthen the plants’ resistance to diseases and pests. Combined with biological pest control, this contributes to a healthy greenhouse environment.

Rosa Danica’s favourite product? The Kordana® pot rose. Through the now 30-year-long cooperation with German breeder Kordes Rosen, the horticultural company acquired a strong position in the market.

Together, they develop new Kordana® pot roses. After crossing at Kordes Rosen, the product is tested at Rosa Danica. Here, more than 2,000 different Kordana® pot roses are tested annually for their qualities and values. Four to six of these come onto the market as new Kordana® varieties.

This is how roses stay beautiful for longer

  • A potted rose likes plenty of light. If temperatures are not too tropical, feel free to give them a spot in the sun. Provided they get plenty of water. In summer, even every day.
  • Make sure the soil does not dry out. The best trick? Pour about three cm of water into the overpot. Wait 15 minutes and then empty it again.
  • About 14 days after purchase, the plant needs more fertiliser. In spring and summer, they will last longer if fertilised once every fortnight. In winter or autumn, it is once every three weeks.
  • Remove spent flowers.
  • Give the potted rose a second life in the garden . How to. When the rose has flowered out inside, cut four cm from the top of the pot and plant it in a light place in the garden. But be careful, it’s best to plant the potted rose between May (after  Ice Saints) and September.
  • The Kordana® pot rose tolerates light frost.
