Corine and Frank of Montana Lisianthus won the prestigious Dutch Tulip Award for Best Cut Flower last night in The Netherlands.
The voting for the award had been going on since last year and, as each round of results came in, the shortlist got shorter and shorter. L. ‘Botanic Pink’ is a ground-breaking variety and from the outset designers who have seen it have fallen in love with it.
It offers lots of opportunities for both classical and contemporary designers and we have always loved it – even when it was fresh from the trial beds we knew it would become a star.
This award is the BIGGIE in Dutch terms and needless to say Montana Lisianthus are still celebrating today. We send out heart felt congratulations to these hard working growers!
