New Lily Variety Unveiled to Mark 50 Years of Vietnam-Netherlands Relations
In early November 2023, a working group from Lam Dong, Dong Thap, and Son La, flower farm owners, and scientists from Vietnamese scientific research and training facilities came to the Netherlands to work with Dutch partners in the floricultural research and training industry.
On this occasion, a new lily variety hybridized by Onings Holland Flowerbulbs was officially named Sutudo. For many years, Onings Holland Flowerbulbs has been in Vietnam, cooperating and exporting flower bulbs and efficiently supporting Vietnamese partners.
