Years of breeding and long experience with Tanacetum cultivation have led to these successful cut flower selections.
Tanacetum can be grown year round, 5 to 6 crops per year, provided that assimilation light is available. It requires a minimum of 12 hours of light. The production peiod varies between 8 and 12 weeks from transplant.
Tanacetum parthenium belongs to the Asteraceae family (formerly Compositae – compound flowers) and is originally a European plant. In the trade, Tanacetum parthenium is mainly known as Matricaria. In the vernacular, this plant is also called feverfew because it was in the past used as a cure for fever.
Single flowered varieties are also referred to as daisy like. Through years of experience in the field of breeding, Evanthia has developed a number of cultivars that have already proved themselves in the market. These include for example the ‘Baya’ variety, a double-flowered white that over the last few years, has ruled the market in this segment. The added value of this variety lies in its ‘operational safety’; concerning the number of first quality branches, uniformity, reduced sensitivity to disease and it being able to withstand less favourable climatic conditions. In ‘Amazone’, Evanthia also has a top of the range variety in the yellow segment.
