Summary:
These plants have rounded medium-sized bracts with a bright, slightly orange red color. Bracts are displayed flat with 6-9 large showy cyathia within an open inflorescence center. Branching was good and uniform resulting in a well-shaped plant. Stem strength was good and plants flowered midseason. Plants were vigorous in North Carolina and average vigor in the Ontario trial. Plants responded well to PGRs and would be suitable to a variety of pot sizes.
