CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER ARCHITECTURAL PLANTS!
PHILLYREA LATIFOLIA ‘NIWAKI’
ARCHITECTURAL PLANTS: STAND CP39
When Jake Hobson joined Architectural Plants around the turn of the century, his oriental gardening experience was quickly put to use. The idea of growing their own ‘Niwaki’ - rather than continuing to import from Japan - was highly appealing.
‘Niwaki’ is Japanese for ‘garden tree’, this lead to the Phillyrea latifolia as the perfect choice of tree to be ‘Niwaki’d’. They made that decision in about 1998 and have stuck with it ever since. Not only is it shapely in the extreme, but tough as old boots to the point of being impregnable.
They selected their finest Phillyrea Niwaki, field grown by Jake Hobson himself. Bask under its glory at their stand.

GRESTEC TILES: STAND F17
External 20 is the ideal solution for exterior paving; intended for large-scale commercial and landscape projects.

They are an excellent choice for urban spaces, private gardens, and green areas around hotels and restaurants.
OUTDOOR DECKING & TERRACES
WATERWOOD: STAND E1
WaterWood stands for ecological and highly durably hardwood harvested from the Brokopondo-Reservoir in Suriname.
When the reservoir was created, due to the construction of a power plant, the forest in the valley was inundated. Hundreds of thousands trees died, but were also naturally impregnated by the fresh water.
Now, 60 years later, the trees are felled and serve as the ideal material for
European terraces. WaterWood offers three highly resistant wood species perfectly suited for outdoor decking.
So far, hundreds of thousands square meters of WaterWood terraces have been built in Europe - with more yet to come.
