Breeder:Dummen Orange Ecke
Summary:Think “green with envy”. Yes, the bract color is light green or chartreuse. The bracts are medium in size with wavy margins and are held slightly up around tight centers. Stems are average in thickness and are generally upright; however, some plants with horizontal branches have been seen. Branching is average with some plants not branching well. Plants are medium vigor, but in the heat of Florida there was some stretching that was controlled with late PGR applications. In North Carolina and Ontario flowering was generally late, but it does respond well to use of blackcloth for earlier finish. This cultivar has looked good in both warm and cool growing conditions. Based on consumer responses, Envy may not be as popular as novelties such as Ice Crystal or Ice Punch. But, it will be useful for growers producing differentiated products.
