Mira Red

Breeder:
Syngenta
Summary:
These plants had large medium red bracts. Larger older bracts hung down and newer bracts were held up and slightly ruffled. Older bracts had an oak-leaf shape. Plants are low to medium vigor with good branching and dark green leaves. Centers are large with a large number of cyathia. While this is a nice cultivar, it is not particularly distinctive. Plants flower early to mid-season.
