The long process of hybridization and selection to obtain new varieties of roses and irises proceeds parallel to the cultivation chain and can take on average 8 years to obtain a new variety. This productive-creative combination creates the uniqueness of this company.
Novaspina focuses on the selection of roses that retain morphological characteristics suitable for development in difficult climates, whether hot or cold.
This nonconformist research comes from the use of little known parents to develop an improvement program from the oldest cultivars to the most current varieties.
Before a new rose enters the market, it takes 6-8 years of evaluation to establish the reliability of the plant even in climates other than its original one.
For this reason, more than 10,000 square meters of nursery area, outside the store, is cultivated to evaluate, test and then multiply the seedlings.
Many hours of work are spent to obtain as many new seedlings as possible which will be tested in the following years, but only an extremely small number of them will be worth multiplying.
In our territory, high temperatures, water imbalances and high relative humidity for a long time, inhibit the normal flowering and disease resistance of even the most reliable varieties (again this year there have been heat waves with temperatures ranging from 32 to 42 degrees for several weeks associated with high humidity and absence of rain).
In these conditions we are selecting some roses that show very satisfactory performance also in other climates; this is confirmed by the results at international competitions and many customers and gardeners satisfied with the recommended varieties.
As far as the irises are concerned, the selection and research is oriented towards tall beards, re-flowering hybrids and varieties with particular colours, easily inserted in the garden, in a border and as excellent companions of the roses.
