A real garden showstopper, Freak!® is covered with large amounts of fluffy-looking flowers formed from layers of white petals. The 5 to 6 cm flowers are evenly distributed all over compact, well-branched plants. Unusually for Leucanthemum, Freak!® reblooms, so provides flowers over a long period. Vibrant dark-green foliage provides a clean, well-contrasting backdrop. Plants reach just 23 cm the first year in containers, eventually attaining a mature garden height of 33 cm. Bred by Har Stemkens of Syngenta Flowers.
Fast & profitable
Freak!® is easy to grow and programmable for fresh flowering plants over a long sales period. Vernalisation is not necessary for flowering and shelf-ready plants can be produced quickly, in about 11 weeks. Plants are naturally well-branched with strong stems, so no pinching is required. Compact size means more plants per trolley, thereby reducing transport costs.
