Majoris Red

Breeder:
Syngenta
Summary:
Majoris Red has potential to be a larger plant with medium or slightly greater vigor. The plants have strong stems and slightly wide growth habit that benefits from using rings. Branching is good and the plant produces enough shoots to fill out larger pots. The medium sized bracts are bright red and presented on top of the plant. Majoris flowered midseason at NC State. Compared to Titan Red, which also is fairly vigorous, Majoris Red will produce a fuller appearance and size will be easier to control. Majoris Red has the characteristics to make very nice plants in 6-inch and larger sizes. It should work also in 4.5-inch products with appropriate adjustments to schedules and growth regulator use.
