Summary:With a natural vigor midway between the Luv-U series and the Princettias, the J’Adore series works well for 6 to 8-inch containers. Plants are adaptable and can be grown in small pots as they are responsive to PGRs or in large containers with time added to the schedule. Pink Blush is the most compact and shows first color later than the other colors. While Hot Pink officially flowered later than the other two colors, anthesis can be hard to judge on these plants and all three colors have a long marketing period. Three colors are available ranging from light pink (aging to white) to light pink to bright pink. For reference, the J’Adore Hot Pink is close to, but not as fluorescent pink as ‘Luv-U-Pink’. All three cultivars are characterized by very large, open centers with many cyathia. Unlike plants in the Luv-U series that tend to not develop cyathia or drop them early, the J’Adore series holds cyathia well, but tend to drop a light carpet of anthers and pollen, making the plant somewhat messy. Foliage is dark green, elongated and plant have uniform branching. Although stems are not particularly thick, plants are strong and hold their branches well when sleeved or transported. Late season PGR applications will maintain uniformity and reduce stretching without reducing bract size.
