Aria Red

Breeder:
Syngenta
Summary:
This is an attractive cultivar suited for smaller size formats. The bright red bracts are smaller than average and held upright on top of the plant. Centers are smaller than average. Branching is very good and habit is a wide V-shape. Plants have low to medium vigor. Compared to Titan Red, the plants are shorter and fuller with more leaves and bracts. Although described as an early season cultivar, plants flowered midseason at both trial locations. Aria Red will likely be most useful in 6 1/2-inch or smaller pots or other formats needing a short attractive plant.
