Benary, Jinpin Host Flower Trials in China
The first official Benary Flower Trials in China took place April 25 to 27, 2019, in Chengdu, Sichuan.
The exhibition was hosted by Jinpin Flower Seedling Co., which is located in Pixan, part of Chengdu city, in the Sichuan province. Jinpin translates to “golden quality” in Chinese.
With the theme of “New Gardening Power”, the exhibition covered more than 430,000 square feet and displayed about 550 new flower varieties including 100 varieties of begonia.
The exhibition began with a red ribbon ceremony by Chinese government officials, representatives of the German consulate of Chengdu as well as the Jinpin and Benary management.One of the top highlights of the trials was the Benary Garden displaying major seed and cutting raised varieties such as begonias, lupins, grasses, petunias, verbena, helianthus, dianthus, lavandula as well as osteospermum, pelargonium, thunbergia, dahlia and many more.
More than 1,100 growers, landscapers and young plant producers from the greater Chengdu area attended the event to see the new flower varieties and hear educational speeches regarding new cultivation techniques and scientific research.
One of the stars of the event was the Benary’s BIG begonia. Since the series was introduced, it has captured more and more of the global market, from China and Russia to Europe and the USA. Its multi-purpose use and low maintenance make it popular with growers and gardeners.
The event was co-organized by Benary and Ican Seed — both shareholders of Jinpin. Jinpin is focused on providing young plants to the rapidly growing Chinese bedding plant market.
