Two Varieties Managed by Plants for Europe Granted European Plant Variety Rights

Gaura Ruby Ruby 

Plants For Europe (PFE) is delighted to announce that two PFE-managed plant varieties have been granted Plant Variety Rights. Gaura Ruby Ruby (HARRUBY), bred by Rosy Hardy of Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants, Freefolk, Hampshire, is an excellent compact and bushy variety with strong ruby pink flowers and ruby red stems. It branches freely and produces lots of flowers.

Philadelphus Starbright

Philadelphus Starbright was bred at the Memorial University of Newfoundland Botanic Garden in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. It is very hardy, with a strong upright habit. The young foliage and calyces are both near-black, contrasting superbly with the pure white flowers. It is early flowering and strongly scented – one of the best Philadelphus in the market.

Further information on both plants, including details of young plant suppliers, can be found at www.plantsforeurope.com

Graham Spencer, director of Plants For Europe, said “PFE continues to have a very high ‘strike rate’ with applications for EU Community Plant Variety Rights – we vastly exceed the average rate for success in applications. If a breeder places their variety with us, we believe that they are optimizing the chance of having PVR granted for their plant.”
