Chrysanthemum santini Maverick White. The name says it all. Obviously, it's a white chrysanthemum santini, so expect many pristine flowers on a sturdy stem. The name Maverick tells you it's a bit of a rebel, definitely not your usual white santini.
A Real Maverick
In colloquial terms, 'Maverick' refers to an independent-minded person with the undertone of an outcast, a maverick. Everything you would expect of a flower that wants to stand out from the crowd. Dutch Breeder Floritec and grower Richard van Schie have outdone themselves again with this Santini Maverick White.
Pompon Santini With a Fresh Green Heart
Maverick White is a beautiful pompon santini with a fresh green heart. The vase life is more than excellent. The stems are strong and the heart remains fresh green throughout flowering. Maverick White also performs very well year-round in cultivation. Due to its uniformity, this variety offers many advantages for the grower. Grower Richard van Schie: "For a grower, good yield, steady quality, and uniformity of a product are important. Santini Maverick White has all that and is the best of its kind. What I also like about this flower are the extremely long shelf life, the year-round beautiful white color, attractive leaves, and a nice green center. Furthermore, this flower has an excellent spray, making it a good filler for any bouquet."
The Maverick Family
With Santini Maverick White a real Maverick family has arisen. Maverick Sunny was successfully introduced some time ago and has since proven itself in terms of shelf life and uniformity. In addition, Santini Maverick Gold is ending its test phase by the end of 2021 and will be widely available in 2022. This variety is warm-yellow with an orange glow. And more colors are being developed of this rock solid.
Positive Reception With Traders
Breeder Floritec is very happy with the response from the market. Co-owner and responsible for cut flower sales Harry Boers: "The first reactions from the trade are very positive. Clock buyers have adopted this new white santini very easily, making it one of the best santini introductions of 2021." So, probably in all of us, there's a bit of a maverick.
