Candlelight White

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
The cultivar is intended to match Christmas Day Red and it certainly is. Candlelight White reached first color and flowered within two days of Christmas Day Red, midseason, and both were close to the same height. Candlelight White is not a color mutation from Christmas Day, however. While stem strength is very good, it is probably not as strong as is Christmas Day. Candlelight White has medium-sized creamy white bracts with some green veining and would be appropriate for a range of container sizes used along with Christmas Day.
