(Allgemeine Deutsche Rosenneuheiten Prüfung)

September 17, 2007

Two more ADR awards for Meilland this year, one for Meiclusif Line Renaud ® /Meilland's Rose Elbflorenz ® definitely one of the most awarded Meilland's roses and one for Meipelmel Yann Arthus-Bertrand ® / Pretty ® Sunrise a superb landscape shrub. The German ADR is awarded every year to varieties beyond any suspicion.

To be awarded an ADR, the rose varieties have to fulfill some very precise characteristics, above all an excellent disease resistance, this is why in the 11 test gardens spread on the whole German territory, all the plants are cultivated without any chemical pesticide. Other characteristics are winter hardiness, number of flowers, attractiveness and fragrance.

From the beginning in 1952, 147 rose varieties have been awarded an ADR, among these only 5 Hybrid Teas, which gives a better idea of the extraordinary qualities of Meiclusif Line Renaud ® / Meilland's Rose Elbflorenz ®, the other varieties belong to the landscape range just like Meipelmel Yann Arthus-Bertrand ® / Pretty ® Sunrise.

Between 1952 and 2006, 23 Meilland varieties have won an ADR.

Julio Iglesias presents his rose in Paris

June 28, 2007

During his 2007 world tour, Julio Iglesias will make a stop in Paris for two concerts at the famous Olympia by the end of June and he kindly accepted to christen the rose dedicated to him by Meilland.

The unique color, light cream strongly striped with red and the fragrance of a rare intensity described by the Perfumers in Grasse as "orange and grapefruit with a touch of Madagascar Verbena" should make this rose a real hit.

No doubt this new rose will charm all the enthusiasts just like the voice of the most successful latin singer in music history.
