Ideal stem, leaf, and spike proportions
Efficient and productive
Resists low-light conditions
Piet Mohlen is part of the Floreals product group. This group consists of varieties with large spikes (more than 50% of the stem is made up of spike), a compact length, and slim leaves below the lowermost bud. These varieties are also selected for vase life. In production, gladioli from the Floreals group are efficient and productive, thanks to a relatively short forcing time, uniform flowering, and a low loss percentage. Piet Mohlen is a variety that stands on its own. It is much in demand because of its strong properties in flower production and trade. It is the only white variety that can be grown in winter (low and decreasing light) conditions. It is also one of the strongest white varieties in resistance against Burkholderia. A fun fact: Piet Mohlen was our crop advisor for many years and now enjoying his retirement. The photos of this variety will be supplemented and improved next summer with the flowers from our show garden for a clearer and more beautiful image.
