The large, triangular comb-shaped flower heads are truly definitive of this series, which has set the industry standard for this popular, striking professional cut flower class. Bombay adds an exclusive touch to any bouquet, whether alone or mixed. This high-quality greenhouse series features round stems, flat combs, a wide range of appealing colours and truly uniform growth. The short, programmable production period; high yields; strong stems and absence of off-shoot flowers make the series suitable for economical, high-density production. Bombay offers a 3 to 4-week shorter production period, better transportability, better stress resistance and longer vase life – up to 3 weeks – versus the competition. The original Bombay series has been enriched with Bombay Fire colours, which are narrow and small-leafed, easily reach a good length and are well-matched for easy production planning.
