fruelo F1 hybrids are available in two mixes and colour-sorted.
The standard mix consists of bright colours and special colours. The elcora mix consists exclusively of varieties with the popular flower markings of the elcora special colours.

With its wide range of colours and stately habit, fruelo is one of the most versatile series in the Ebbing-Lohaus product range. This early flowering, robust primula is perfect for sales from Christmas onwards. With its strong growth, it is also suitable for the cultivation in larger pot sizes. Special colours are available as part of the fruelo standard mix or as a separate elcora colour mix. Our special colours are particularly eye-catching and an excellent selling point, especially in early varieties.

The wide coloured border around the bright white or yellow flowers with a yellow eye is typical of the popular elcora type. These markings give the flowers a particularly cheerful look and offer a striking contrast within the interplay of colours and against the rich green foliage. Bicoloured and multicoloured flowers are on trend, which makes elcora as a special colour a welcome herald of spring. And, as a fruelo/elcora mix, it captivates with its strong, round growth habit and large blooms.
