Christmas Spirit

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
Christmas Spirit has large red bracts that hang down a bit producing the classic ball of red look. This early to mid-season cultivar is fairly vigorous, but is responsive to PGRs, which may be needed to control growth, especially early in the production schedule. Branching was good and growth was upright.
