Fleuroselect members may enter their newest varieties into the Gold Medals & Approved Novelty trials. Entries are evaluated versus existing comparison varieties by expert and independent judges on criteria including innovation, practical use, floriferousness and garden performance. 

Gold Medal

The Fleuroselect Gold Medal is awarded to new varieties that clearly surpass existing varieties in terms of breeding innovation and beauty. This prestigious award symbolises excellence in breeding and beauty and the organisation promotes the winners in the press, at trade fairs and in display gardens across the world. These varieties are the trendsetters of the moment, and represent the absolute top in breeding and beauty.

Approved Novelty

New varieties granted Approved Novelty status have been recognised by the Fleuroselect judges to be sufficiently new and different versus existing cultivars. They moreover passed the rigorous requirement for uniformity. These innovative cultivars are protected by the membership from reproduction by a gentlemans agreement amongst the members.

Novelty Protection can be purchased for the period of 8, 15, 20 or 25 years.
