  • Syngenta Flowers is proud to announce we have won the Fleuroselect competition 2020 with our Dahlia Hybrida Sincerity. This true eye catcher stole the show amongst a very strong competition. Dahlia breeder Ronald Snijder and our global of Head of Flowers Michael Kester happily received the prestigious award from Ann Jennen from FleuroSelect in a special Covid-19 proof setting with a live stream on Facebook and the Fleuroselect  website.  Its flower size the branching habits and colour make it a wonderful plant in a pot or for landscaping.

    Super proud Dahlia breeder Ronald Snijder about this achievement: It is a wonderful product; Sincerity has amazing flowers as big as my hand. This Dahlia originates from the Verwer breeding program, is suitable for various pot sizes and also a perfect landscaping plant. On top, it is an easy to grow and care product, grows quickly and can handle all types of weather conditions. It is simply a jewel in your garden!”

    Michael Kester is also extremely proud: “This is an important achievement; for our breeder, our customer and the whole chain, because innovation brings value to the market. We need this kind of innovations in our industry. Personally, I love this plant. This more than just as product, it’s beautiful. Dahlia is a very strategic crop for us and there is more to come. I was keeping my fingers crossed till the end in the hope that we would win, because we had very strong competition.”

    This is what Fleuroselect said about Sincerity:

    For giant and dazzling, meet Sincerity from Syngenta Flowers. This new Dahlia’s fully double flowers can reach a diameter of over 20 cm! Sincerity features a multitude of early blooms showcasing large pink and white bi-color flowers with just a touch of yellow at their centre. This newcomer is compact and well-branched, providing a well-shaped backdrop for the showy blooms. Displaying best in mid to late summer and early fall, this Dahlia is a smart choice for landscaping and large planters, or to fill the first holes in perennial borders. Sincerity is an excellent garden performer with massive colour impact that will convince retail and consumers.

  • Sunfinity® Yellow with Dark Center Sunflower
    Make your landscape come to life with Sunfinity Sunflowers that thrive and bloom continuously all season long. Sunfinity Sunflowers have lots of blooms that can be cut and used indoors, with no mess and without damaging the outdoor plant....

  • Nearly a decade of effort has led to Sunfinity, the sunflower that revolutionizes the home garden experience. Sunfinity started with a desire to give the home gardener a more colorful, longer-lasting sunflower. Traditional sunflowers are either small potted plants or cut flowers with only one stem, a single flower head, and blooms lasting for only 7–10 days. Sunfinity was cultivated to have many stems with a multitude of blooms and season-long performance, making it truly unique and different from every other sunflower.


    In order to achieve these unique characteristics, we took the best attributes of two species and created what plant breeders call an interspecific hybrid.  Because we know that a beautiful garden starts with high quality plants, we work closely with commercial Sunfinity growers and greenhouses to grow the best quality plants for home gardeners.

  • Cora® XDR
    Cora XDR variety is genetically strengthened with eXtreme Disease Resistance. So you can be confident your customers have the best plant performance possible when threatened by disease....

    • Reduced Risk: offers season-long flowering and survival in landscape plantings. Highly resistant to ten of the most virulent isolates of Phytophthora nicotianae that cause Phytophthora blight on annual vinca.*

    • Easier to grow: improved branching, uniformity, and floriferousness ideal for premium packs and small to larger pots.

    • Higher consumer appeal: large showy flowers in the widest range of solid and high demand bicolor patterns of any disease resistant vinca on the market.

    *Confirmed in collaboration with Clemson University; These isolates were found at growers and in landscapes across the southern U.S.
