Christmas Magic

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
Christmas Magic is a compact plant with relatively few leaves below the bracts. This resulted in a slightly cramped bract display in North Carolina that would be improved by adding a week or two into the schedule. Plants showed first color early in Florida and North Carolina and also flowered early in North Carolina. In Florida, plants performed well and would be suitable for small to 6-inch containers with minimal PGRs required. The average sized bracts were medium red and they are flat across the top of the plant. Plants had uniform branching.
