Summary:The medium size bracts are held flat and along with the uniform stem elongation puts the bracts in a single plane on top of the plant canopy. Bract color is a vibrant deep red, and cyathia are large and colorful. Plants flowered mid to late season. In North Carolina and Ontario, plants were medium vigor with very good branching. Plants were upright with large caliper stems. Florida plants were larger and greater amounts of PGR were needed. In Florida also, the laterals started growing rapidly, even before pinching, and the stems were a little thin at the base; earlier PGR applications would have helped this. Blissful Red has the potential to be a useful cultivar for 6-inch and larger pot sizes.
