FleuroStar Award 2017/18 goes to our Calibrachoa PinkTastic

We are very happy that our double flowering Calibrachoa PinkTastic could convince the judges during the FlowerTrials® and has been awarded with the FleuroStar 2017/2018.

Hence, PinkTastic is following the unique Petunia variety NightSky® which was the winner with the Wow Factor in 2015.

PinkTastic truly catches the eye thanks to two bicoloured pink-white circles of inner petals in each flower, which add to an in-depth colour perception. This excellent summer performer enjoys all the benefits of the MiniFamous® series, such as easy growth, improved root system, the very early flowering and mildew tolerance.

Anita Stöver, the only breeder attending the event, was very happy that her “dream of a rose“ has been succeeding. She accepted the price with cheers and capers.

Anita Stöver (Züchterin Selecta one):
„Ever since I started breeding Calibrachoa I had a vision that I wanted to achieve. There was plenty of room for improvements regarding branching, rooting and early flowering. I’ve tried many different breeding methods. Some with success, some a failure. But I always kept an eye on my dream. Eventually, when I could select this fantastic bi-coloured pink double flowering Calibrachoa I knew it was something special. It was obvious to me that MiniFamous® Double PinkTastic is a special Calibrachoa. But I could not have dreamed that this variety would have such a wow factor and win the FleuroStar award 2017.”
