Christmas Feelings Pink

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
One of the more uniformly-colored pinks available with dark green foliage. While this cultivar has paler older bracts, the bracts do not have the grayish tinge found on many dark green leaved cultivars. The young bracts are a darker rosy pink and the older ones have a salmon cast. Growth habit and timing match Christmas Feelings Red. Christmas Feelings is emerging as a good early mid-season cultivar and this color is a great addition.
