Christmas Glory Pink

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
This is a new color that generally matches the appearance and growth habit of Christmas Glory Red. The cultivar is low vigor, and this series is less vigorous then the Christmas Beauty series. In North Carolina the pink and white cultivars started coloring later than the red, but all three colors finished close together in both North Carolina and Ontario. In Florida, the pink cultivar finished considerably later and plant shape was less uniform compared to the red and white cultivars. Like Christmas Glory Red, the heart shaped bracts on this color are large and lie flat on top of the plant. Christmas Glory Pink is brighter than Christmas Beauty Pink, but has the classic grayish cast to older bracts and is not as bright as Christmas Lights. This cultivar fits best in a program with Christmas Glory Red in smaller sizes with less PGR use.
