Mars Marble

Breeder:
Syngenta
Summary:
Mars Marble has creamy white bracts and a pale pink blaze down the center of each bract. Like other dark leaf types the marble color is not as good as some of the cultivars with medium green foliage, but it is useful in the Mars series. Plants were uniform with excellent branching. Plants flowered mid to late season, two days after Mars Red and were medium to low vigor.
