Breeder:Dummen Orange Red Fox
Summary:The name of this cultivar is supposed to create an image of a red sports car. Ferrara is a fast growing, vigorous red cultivar that is being positioned for growers who use a short schedule. The general appearance of Ferrara is somewhat similar to Advent Red and Tikal Red. Bract color is a bright, slightly orange red. Centers are large with numerous cyathia that hold well. Initially bracts are smooth and medium to large in size. As plants mature, bracts curve downward a bit at the edges, reminiscent of Advent Red. The plants have good branching, very strong stems and an upright habit. Shoot elongation is varied resulting in the bracts being staggered at the top of the plant rather than a uniform plant shape. In the Florida heat, the plants did not stretch and were easy to manage. Plants flowered early to mid-season. Ferrara should be useful in a wide range of formats.
