Breeder:Paul Ecke Ranch
Summary:This distinctive pink was introduced with Majestic Red and is well matched to the red. The appearance is a very flat top with the long narrow bracts arranged in layers. The first transition bracts are lighter with green veins and the color becomes a rich salmon pink as newer bracts develop – thus the “majestic” connotation. The cultivar was low to medium vigor in Florida and Ontario, but should be used in 6.5 to 8-inch containers to take advantage of the distinctive appearance. Interestingly, it loved North Carolina’s climate where it was high vigor. In Ontario, Majestic Pink finished Dec. 1 and Dec. 6 at 62° and 66°, respectively. It finished Nov. 24 in North Carolina. Because of the wide growth habit, it is less likely to be useful in mass-market situations. However, Majestic Pink should be considered by growers who are producing a differentiated product.
