Enduring Red

Breeder:
Paul Ecke Ranch
Summary:
When Enduring Pink was released, it found a place as a low vigor, early flowering plant with bright pink bracts that did not fade. The low vigor growth of this series provided a finished plant with strong branches and no late stretch problems. The newly released colors in this series are well matched in terms of appearance, growth habit and finish timing. The Enduring series has a very upright bract display with somewhat elongated bracts, uniform breaking, and dark green foliage. Enduring Red is medium red and the younger bracts are darker red. For 6.5-inch pots add one (south) to three (north) weeks of long days after the pinch to your normal schedule for plants to have adequate height at flowering. This series will be easy to grow and certainly find a place in the poinsettia market.
