Berlin (Germany), July 14, 2023: German digital botany software company Laubwerk announces Plant Kit 18: Temperate Ornamental Perennials. Laubwerk Plant Kits are collections of beautiful, render-ready 3D plants explicitly created for architects, garden and landscape designers, and CG and VFX artists.

The new Plant Kit 18 is a collection of ten temperate ornamental species and cultivars suited for sunny dry sites in gardens and parks. These plants are commonly planted in temperate regions around the world. They range from compact showy cultivars, such as the blue eryngo 'Blue Hobbit' and the giant hyssop 'Blue Fortune', to commonly known species such as the purple coneflower. It also includes the spectacular ballheaded onion known as Dutch garlic 'Purple Sensation'. This is a great kit for adding color, structure, and unprecedented detail to your outdoor designs.

Buy now for an amazing deal! Customers who buy this pre-release version now will get the full Kit 18 free when it is released, including all the Kit 18 plant seasons. Once the full set of seasons have been added, the pre-release price will not be available any more. If you buy now, you get the full kit at half the price!
