"New fast-growing Israeli Crysanthumun flower named in honor of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and will be called "MODI". Indeed, a #GrowingPartnership!," the Israeli government said on its official Twitter handle.
Earlier, PM Modi visited the Danziger "Dan" flower farm along with his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu in Mishmar Hashiva where they were briefed about the latest technologies being used for floriculture.
The Danziger flower farm is one of Israel's leading floriculture companies with approximately 80,000 square meters of state-of-the-art greenhouses specialising in reproduction of plants.
PM Modi was greeted by Benjamin Netanyahu along with the top tier of Israel's leadership - known as segel aleph - an honour given to only a few leaders.
