Summary:
This cultivar has medium red bracts and darker red young bracts. The medium to large sized bracts are laid flat on the plants but the young bracts are rather tightly clustered in the center of the inflorescence. Cyathia are very large with bright green and yellow colors. Branching is good with uniform growth and upright habit. Flowering is early to mid-season and plants have medium vigor. The variety should be suited for a range of different container sizes.
