CMG celebration of Violet 2018

Color Marketing Group's celebration of violet erupts for 2018!
Predicted during international workshops in 2016, for emergence in 2018, violet, in numerous values, has been deemed an important color for the year, appearing in every region of the CMG World Color Forecast™!
In celebration of the predictions, Color Marketing Group® congratulates, and concurs with Pantone, on their exciting choice for their color of the year, Ultra Violet. We are ecstatic with their choice and our shared enthusiasm for color. Violet hues appeared in forecasts from CMG's Asia Pacific's "Pudding Purple," to North America's "Bruised Steel," as colors of importance for the year.

Those are just two that are close in family. In all, ten out of 64 World Color Forecast™ hues, almost 15%, fall into the violet family! The importance of this color influence from quiet, contemplative lavender, to bold, sumptuous violet, and numerous iterations between, cannot be denied. Whether luxurious or healing, CMG members around the world have seized the nuances of this hue to emerge in 2018, transporting the aesthetics of products as wide reaching as fashion, home, action recreation, and automotive.

In 2018, Violet emerges in the world of color, from a world of color professionals, who share a passion for the right hues at the right moment.

Flower Book ~ Amaryllis Season

It is that time of the year again!

Amaryllis season in full effect!

Yes, we are getting ready again for the Christmas days! In our last mail we informed you about two bouvardia varieties that are great for Christmas arrangements. But what about this famous Christmas product, the Amaryllis! To see how the grower is preparing himself for the coming hectic days we went to visit Amazone Amaryllis. During the visit we had a glimpse of the process and the beautiful varieties that they grow.

Grown on demand, an ocean of flowers

Field full of fresh grown amaryllis, these will be ready to cut within a few days. The growing is completely planned and structured for the upcoming holidays. By controlling the bulb- and greenhouse temperature this grower can spread the bloom and make sure that we can enjoy these beautiful flowers in winter and specially for Christmas.

Ready for action!

These amaryllis are cut and ready for transport to go to the auction or  to the wholesale. They are packed carefully with protection around the flowers. 

Availability, Where and when to buy?

Check out the availability in the Flowerbook app or contact your local supplier for the buying options! The season of Amazone Amaryllis starts in October and is ends generally in January.

Flowers in the greenhouse.

Of each variety that are grown by Amazone they show off one flower. The above images are on the left Nymph and on the right Sunny Nymph. These flowers are left on the field to show visitors the products! 

The collection of Amazone.

As a florist, you are always looking for the most beautiful flowers to work with. The range of Amazone Amaryllis consists of heavy and exclusive varieties: large red, white, pink and two-colored. Their specialty is growing ten double-flowered (Nymph) varieties. Also new varieties are experimented with. Most important in this process, products have to be uniform and trustworthy. The wide assortment and strict quality provides many opportunities for surprising your customers. With 15 different varieties, Amazone is one of the most complete amaryllis grower. The image shows all the varieties that are grown during this season. The complete collection and information you can find in the Flowerbook app! 

Timelapse

Beautiful timelapse of the variety "Popov". It shows you all the stages of this flower.
