The company has a high-performance in vitro micro-propagation laboratory with an annual capacity of about a million plants. Phytesia also has a greenhouse infrastructure of almost 4,000m2 for the acclimatisation of the young plants coming from the laboratory and for the cultivation of the various varieties up until their flowering stage.

Phytesia offers today about fifty selected varieties, thus proposing a wide range of colour, size and flowering period.

In order to meet our customer demand as effectively as possible, we propose hardy varieties that are capable of resisting very vigorous winters (- 20°C to -30°C) (CypripediumDactylorhizaEpipactis,…) and semi-rustic varieties that can withstand a light frost (- 10°C) (CalanthePleione,…), which are particularly suited for cultivation in pots or in the Mediterranean climate regions.
