Summary:This new cultivar can be used to produce a plant that makes a statement. The plant has large leaves and big smooth bracts that are held on top of the plant. Stem strength and plant habit are similar to Prestige Red, except that Grande Italia is taller. It may be more vigorous than the average cultivar, but height should be easy to control. Finish timing is midseason (8.5 weeks). Grande Italia may become an important cultivar for use in larger formats.
