Summary:The bright red bracts were held in tight clusters and the young bracts were dark red. Plants have noticeably large cyathia. The plants were medium to low vigor at NCSU, but higher vigor elsewhere. Plants had good branching and strong stems. Plant habit was not as upright as Christmas Day. Flowering was early to mid-season. Plants will work well for small to medium size pots, but have stem strength and vigor for larger pots with adequate weeks of growth, especially in cooler climates.
