Christmas Beauty Pink

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
The Christmas Beauty Pink nicely fits into the series in terms of vigor, stem strength and general plant form, but was a few days later in flowering time, which was mid-season. The medium-sized bracts were a medium pink, aging to a salmon pink. The young bracts were dark pink. Many of the plants showed a few red flecks in the bracts that were distracting, but the breeder should be able to clean up the variety with further selections.
