A Little History About Chrysanthemum Week

In previous years, each breeder organized their ‘Open House’ and variety exhibition individually. However, in 2015, Deliflor and Dümmen Orange decided to fuse what would be the greatest idea for the future without knowing. They decided to coordinate their events for the same week, generating such a positive impact that they continued with this collaboration with even more excitement.



From then on, other breeders such as Danziger, Icon Selections, Floritec, Dekker, Progeny Breeding, Royal Van Zanten, Selecta Cut Flowers, and Ball SB joined between 2016 and 2019, thus consolidating the current participation of:

Deliflor Americas, Dümmen Orange, Danziger, Dekker Chrysanten, Floritec, Progeny Breeding, Royal Van Zanten, and Icon Selections.
