LAUNCH OF EXOTIC RANGE OF CHRYSANTHEMUMS
Lassana Flora, South Asia’s first-ever ISO-certified floral solutions provider, has once again revolutionised Sri Lanka’s floral trade with the introduction of exotic chrysanthemums with a guaranteed vase life of seven days. This follows an agreement with Netherlands-based Deliflor, one of the largest chrysanthemum breeders worldwide, and the setting up of a Chrysanthemum Nursery Project in Keppetipola, in an investment valued at Rs. 100 million. As a result of this Dutch collaborated partnership, Lassana Flora will now be able to produce more than 30 varieties and colours of chrysanthemums for the Sri Lankan and international markets. The chrysanthemums would be grown exclusively in greenhouses where daylight is extended using artificial lighting.
