Christmas Cheer

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
Christmas Cheer is a medium (North Carolina) to high vigor (Florida) cultivar that may require large amounts of PGRs to control growth in Florida. In fact, it might be best to shorten the schedule in warm climates. The plant is similar in appearance to Christmas Day Red with medium to large dark red bracts that tend towards the blue side of red and hang down. Plants branched well and were uniform.
