Christmas Glory White

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
This is a new color that generally matches the appearance and growth habit of Christmas Glory Red. It 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 White is a creamy white and might be an option for growers in warm climates who do not care for the lime white of Christmas Beauty North Pole. This cultivar fits best in a program with Christmas Glory Red in smaller sizes with less PGR use.
