The past few editions of FlowerTrials have been particularly memorable for MNP / Suntory. In 2022, they celebrated the 20th anniversary of Sundaville®, their premier brand of Mandevilla/Dipladenia. The following year their double-flowered Mandevilla, Sundaville® Double Blush Pink, won the Fleurostar award for its outstanding appeal.

Highlights of the 2023 FlowerTrials can be relived in the recap video here:


2023 was also the year they reached a monumental milestone with Surfinia®, which surpassed 1.5 billion in sales. This achievement was marked with a celebratory video featuring their general manager, Jeroen Egtberts, and plant enthusiast Michael Perry, also known as Mr. Plant Geek. He commented on this occasion: "Surfinia® has been a major brand for many many years. It's the #1 in Petunia."
