Gaétan Jacquet & PaX

French designer Gaétan Jacquet has been given the opportunity to get acquainted with the Pax multiflora plants. His first experience is:

"The Multiflora Pax is an extraordinary plant with abundant and long flowering. These little chrysanthemum plants are ideal for seasonal and bright creations that fit into the warm colors of the season. And nothing is warmer than beautiful arrangements with these generous plants which also require almost no maintenance.

I love them beyond the symbols they convey. I love them because they are among the first perennial plants that I grew hand in hand with my grandfather in the family garden. This childhood cradled in shimmering colors reminds me of the memories of my elders who passed on to me a love of simple but beautiful things."

Consistency is Key to Bloom Beautifully

If you’ve ever tried growing multiple plants together, you know how annoying it can be if they don’t grow at the same rate or look a bit off. The PaX flowers won't give you that headache. Thanks to some smart science stuff from Royal Van Zanten, they all grow and bloom together. Your garden is going to look so organized and blooming for up to six whole weeks.

Another feature that sets the PaX series apart is its adaptability to blackout systems. Often referred to simply as ‘blackout cultivation’, this is a horticultural technique used primarily for manipulating the photoperiod (light and dark intervals) that plants are exposed to. This method allows growers to control the flowering and growth cycles of plants, especially for species that rely on day length as a cue for developmental changes.

With an increasingly large number of growers leaning towards blackout cultivation methods, finding plants compatible with this system is paramount. The PaX series, with its fast response time, is tailor-made for this mode of cultivation. Flowering commences naturally around week 39/40, guaranteeing growers a timely and robust yield. For consumers, this translates to a prolonged period of floral splendor. Imagine gifting someone a pot of PaX chrysanthemums and watching their joy last for up to six weeks! It’s not just a gift of flowers but a lasting experience.

So, whether you're a gardening pro or just starting out, the PaX series from Royal Van Zanten is a no-brainer. In the end, it's all about making your garden or space look good with minimal hassle. And with flowers like these from a trusted breeder, you can't go wrong. So, get out there, grab some PaX blooms in any of their seven colors, and let your garden shine!
