Summary:Harlequin has the curled under bracts typical of the classic Winter Rose style and fills in the Beekenkamp line up with this still important novelty poinsettia. The numerous bright red bracts are tightly arranged around 12 -15 large cyathia. The vigorous plants are upright and flowered late season at NC State, while it was early to mid-season in Ontario. Plants should work well in variety of container sizes. In Florida, Harlequin produced nice plants, but the leaves and bracts were less curled those of Winter Rose Dark Red.
