POELDIJK, The Netherlands– The variety Tabledance has been selected by the visitors of the Dutch Lily Days and other interested parties as most appreciated lily in the world. A successful sequel is given to the Lily League® formula, a “lily parade” of the prettiest and most appreciated lily varieties of this moment. Extra festive was the lily election for Corné de Wildt (Artemis Lilies). The varieties picked by De Wildt came closest to the 10 most voted lily varieties and therefore won the €1,000 travel voucher.
The election of the most beautiful 50 lily varieties took place in honor of the Dutch Lily Days. The event was held for the seventh time this year. At thirteen locations in the Netherlands, breeders and exporters had opened their doors. From June 6th till 9th, visitors were introduced to the new varieties of the future. They were also asked to vote for their lily preferences in a top 10 contest. The Lily League, an initiative by Onings Holland, received many great responses.
