The long process of hybridization and selection to obtain new varieties of roses and iris, 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 , be they hot or cold .
This non- conformist research comes from the use of little-known parents to develop an improvement program starting from the oldest cultivars up to the most current varieties .
Before a new rose enters the market it takes 6-8 years of evaluations to establish the reliability of the plant even in climates other than that of origin.
For this reason, more than 10,000 square meters of surface area of the nursery , outside the point of sale, is cultivated to evaluate , test and then multiply the seedlings.
Many hours of work are spent to obtain as many new seedlings as possible that will be tested in the following years , but only a very 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 (also this year there have been heat waves with temperatures ranging from 32 to 42 degrees for several weeks associated with high humidity and no rain).
In these conditions we are selecting some squads that show very satisfactory performances also in other climates ; This is confirmed by the results at international competitions and by many customers and gardeners satisfied with the recommended varieties.
As for the iris , the selection and research is oriented on tall bearded , re-flowering hybrids and varieties with particular colors , easily inserted in the garden, in a border and as excellent companions of roses .
