Three Varieties, Six Growers

Breeder Dümmen Orange started off with their flower trials a white, filled chrysant called Pina Colada. After a successful introduction, this led to the development of other colors. The natural order is to get a yellow one first, then a cream variety. And the future may bring a pink one too... Up 'til now, six renowned Dutch growers have one or more varieties of Pina Colada and pushed the product forward towards the floral chain. Here is an overview of who has what.

The Varieties

The introduction of white Pina Colada was in 2014. This was followed by the Pina Colada Yellow and the Pina Colada Cream.

The Growers

There are six growers of one or more Pina Colada varieties. Here's an overview of who they are and what they grow for you.
