Dibleys at Chelsea 2006
Dibleys Nurseries is launching three new streptocarpus, which were all bred at the nursery.
Streptocarpus 'Jacquie' was named at the NSPCC 'Cruelty to children must stop' Christmas Ball. The plant was auctioned at the ball and raised £1,050 for the appeal. For every plant of 'Jacquie' sold this year Dibleys Nurseries will donate 5p to NSPCC Wales.
Streptocarpus 'Awena', which is a medium sized cream-white flower with shocking pink veins blending into a very large throat. This plant has come from a breeding programme started nine years ago with the aim of introducing a yellow-flowered streptocarpus.
Streptocarpus 'Ellie' has vibrant cherry-pink flowers with a soft blush pink on the upper lobes. The upper tips revert to the darker cherry-pink.

Streptocarpus 'Jacquie' named by charity auction - to be introduced at Chelsea 2006
The new variety seen here was named 'Jacquie' at the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) Snowball held last December in Cardiff. The final bid was for £1050 (which all goes to the NSPCC). As well as choosing the name the winner will be coming along to the Press Day at the Chelsea Flower Show, where the plant will be officially introduced.
A percentage of all 2006 sales of 'Jacquie' will be donated to the NSPCC.
Click on the image above to see a larger picture of the variety. 'Jacquie' will be available from May 2006.
