These plants have bright rosy red heart-shaped bracts. Bract centers are large with large, colorful cyathia and the inflorescences are open. The first transition bracts are a deep red that is almost burgundy. Branching is very good. However, in Florida’s heat the stems were thin and elongated, resulting in weak plants. Additional PGR was needed earlier on the crop. Stem strength was better in North Carolina. Plants flowered mid to late season. Centauri Red plants are vigorous and probably would be best used in 6.5-inch and larger containers.
