Christmas Beauty Marble

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
Christmas Beauty Marble was released last year but was new to this trial. This cultivar has similar low-medium vigor compared to the rest of the Christmas Beauty series and requires a similar PGR regiment. As with all of the Christmas Beauty series, plants perform and finish well in warmer southeastern conditions. Good branching habit allows for a compact final product. The upright, V-shaped architecture allows for easy handling, sleeving, and transportation. Christmas Beauty Marble has a dark pink blaze in the bracts, which are edged in very dark cream. The bracts in North Carolina had a tendency to curl up and even the older bracts exhibited some of this trait.
