Dr. Dennis Werner's plant breeding accomplishments were recognized at the international Plantarium plant show in the Netherlands.

 

The show attracted 320 exhibitors and more than 17,000 visitors. A  buddleia Dr. Werner developed, called Lilac Chip, won the Color My World Award. The award is based on a vote by show attendees and that Lilac Chip was judged the best at the show in the last 10 years.

 

In addition, a weeping redbud he developed, called Ruby Falls, won a silver medal, while another buddleia, called Ice Chip in the US & White Chip in Europe, won a bronze medal.

 

Like many of his recent releases, these plants are dwarfs, smaller than plants typically available, which can literally take over a small garden.

 

More of Dr. Werner's creations are discussed in the article.
