Titan Red

Breeder:
Syngenta
Summary:
With a name like Titan one would expect a vigorous cultivar. While it was certainly a strong grower, it was not overly vigorous. It had small to medium sized bracts that were held flat. Compared to Mars series, Titan produces more and slightly larger bracts and has a less uniform appearance. Bract color is darker than in Orion Red and is closer to Prestige. Leaves are dark green and finish timing is early.
