Summary:The bright red bracts are held upright on top of the plants. Bract and leaf size is medium to slightly small. Plant habit and stem strength is close to Prestige Red and vigor was similar to Premium Red in Florida, but greater than Premium Red in North Carolina. However, with the smaller bract size the plants appeared to be smaller than Premium or Prestige. Southern Belle is well named in that it is supposed to perform well in high temperatures. Finish timing is midseason to slightly later, depending on the location. Southern Belle makes an attractive plant and should be useful in a range of pot sizes.
