Summary:Prima has smooth red bracts with a slight orange cast held flat. This cultivar has a distinctive plant shape and appearance. It is highly branched with a large number of leaves and bracts that are slightly smaller than average. Plants are not wide and flat on top, but are more rounded. This emerging style of plant may suffer less physical injury during shipping and handling compared to wider plants with large leaves/bracts and stiffer stems. Timing and vigor varied with the location. In Ontario and Florida it finished mid-season and was average vigor. In North Carolina plants were larger and distinctly later flowering. This cultivar should work well in a variety of container sizes.
