Welcome

We would like to welcome you to our new Future Plants website. This site is easier to use so please take a look at our range of perennials that are currenty available. 

We hope this website gives you an idea about the products that we have thoughtfully compiled over the past years. We aren’t boasting when we say we believe we’ve succeeded in putting together a variety range that stands out from the assortment offered on the market today.  

What is Future Plants

Future Plants is a collective effort among 3 companies intended to realise and market new products in de world of plants. The individual companies are specialized in breeding, propagating and production of and /or trade in perennials.

By joining forces, a type of chain integration has been established with which Future Plants can serve the market in its own special way. Future Plants has already secured a strong position in the world of perennials. The retail sector sees added value in Future Plants, not to mention the breeder, who is offered immense sales potential via our sales channels. 

Future Plants has protected most of these varieties in Europe, USA, Canada and some in Japan. Introducing new plants comes mainly by way of our own selective breeding efforts but we also work closely together with other specialized breeders.

We are currently working hard testing and selecting even more new varieties. We will be happy to update you on progress in the near future. Please take a look at the perennuals site for our assortment and our latest introductions.
