NightSky® wins Medal of Excellence

The success story of NightSky® continues in the USA. The petunia with the unique pattern has been able to convince producers, media and reviewers everywhere and just received the Medal of Excellence (Readers’ Choice Award), an award given by the Greenhouse Grower magazine. It’s the third time Selecta one could win this coveted trophy. NightSky® shares this honour with Selecta’s Double Calibrachoa and Double Osteospermum.

In Europe NightSky® has already won numerous prices – it was named ‘FleuroStar 2015’ at the FlowerTrials® and received the price for ‘Best Bedding or Pot Plant’ at the Four Oaks show 2015 in the UK as well as the ‘Gold Innovert Award’ at Salon du Végétal 2016 in Angers, France.

Petunia NightSky® offers a midnight blue flowering with small white spots, reminding of a starry night sky. The colouring is unique and decorative. This variety with a semi trailing habit is well-suited for pots and hanging baskets and flowers continually from May to October.
