Christmas Joy Pink

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
These two new colors are a good fit with Christmas Joy Red and plants across the series have a uniform habit and shape. In North Carolina the pink and white cultivars started coloring later than the red, but all three cultivars flowered at the same time. The series is slightly more vigorous and about a week earlier than the Christmas Beauty series. In Ontario the series would be considered early mid-season. Plant habit and strength varied in the trials. In Ontario, the plants were more upright and strength was similar to the Christmas Beauty series. However in Florida, plants in Christmas Joy series were not quite as strong compared to the Christmas Beauty series. This series of colors are very flexible in how they can be used. This may become one of the better series for use in mixed color-containers.
