The playful green branches, which seem to be perfectly balanced, show once again how well Mother Nature is skilled in her creations. With the loving help of our breeder, she has once again created something exceptionally beautiful for Marginpar
. The scutellaria 'Tinkerbell' looks almost machine-made due to its beautiful design, layout, and shape.
Full of Striking Seed Pods
The sturdy green branches are full of striking seed pods in different shades of green. The combination of dark and light shades combine beautifully with other flowers in bouquets and the absence of leaves at the bottom makes it an easy flower to work with. Scutellaria is very strong, giving it a vase life of at least 14 days.
Long and Beautiful
Scutellaria 'Tinkerbell' grows long and beautifully in the flower fields of Tanzania, at our partner farm Michiru - where our clematis and gloriosa, among others, are also grown. The scutellaria is allowed to stand for a long time in the field, until the flowers have finished flowering and the seed pods have formed. Much to the delight of the bees, which visit the field in large numbers.
From the Flying Minefield
Farm manager Leon de Vries, who stood at the cradle of this new species, sometimes even calls the scutellaria field a 'flying minefield' but - despite the careful maneuver around our flying friends - a beautiful sight. Leon speaks with pride about this new introduction which, like every new species, did not occur overnight. We are therefore very pleased to finally be able to introduce the Scutellaria 'Tinkerbell' to the market.
