Flora Toscana's Projects
Together with its member growers, Flora Toscana has started the cultivation of Proteas in vase in the year 2000, thanks to the partnership with Proteaflora, an Australian firm leader in the cultivation of the Proteaceae family. This collaboration is continuing today with a long term agreement, which guarantees an exclusive contract to Flora Toscana for all Europe.
Over 150 cultivated varieties:
Protea, Leucospermum, Leucadendron Telopea, Banksia, Grevillea Serruria, Telopea, Brunia e Berzelia just to mention a few.
Chamelaucium, commonly called Waxflower, is a native plant to Western Australia and that in its natural habitat can grow into a 5 mt shrub .
Its leaves are narrow and needlelike, flowers during spring time and the flowers come in shades of cream, lilac, pink and white. Waxflower needs a well drained soil and not too much water.
Flora Toscana has 8 varieties in exclusivity for Europe both for pot plant and cut flower production, with a wide assortment with new colours and a longer flowering period.
Dancing Queen, My Sweet Sixteen, Chantilly Lace, Sarah’s Delight, Moonlight Delight, Raspberry Ripple, Strawberry Surprise and Pearl Buttons.
