Christmas Beauty North Pole
Summary:This is a potentially very useful white to go with the popular Christmas Beauty family. It is well matched in flowering time and vigor to Christmas Beauty Red, except in Ontario where it was more compact. North Pole has the strong stems and the uniform rounded appearance notable in Christmas Beauty Red. The Christmas Beauty family has low vigor, but has the stem strength to make very attractive plants up to an 8 inch pot size in warm climates. The bract color is a slightly lime white that is usually referred to as “polar” in other families, thus North Pole is a good name. The plants held up well as they matured in the greenhouse. In Ontario, North Pole finished Nov. 30 and Dec. 5 at 62° and 66°, respectively.
