Venus Hot Pink
Summary:This cultivar has a distinctive dark-hot pink color with no grayish pink cast on the older bracts. Transition bracts were minimal, presenting a clean pink canopy. In low light indoors the dark pink appears closer to red. Venus Hot Pink is a mutation from Mars Late Red (previously named Mars Red) and has the general habit and appearance of Mars Late Red. Venus Hot Pink is later flowering than Mars Pink and Early Mars Red. The plants are very uniform and upright. The smaller than average bracts are held in a flat plane at the top of the canopy. The plants have high vigor and early PGR should be used. Plants flowered mid to late season. Venus Hot Pink may heat delay in hot climates but does retain good stem strength. With the upright and uniform habit, Venus Hot Pink would be useful in production at close spacing, but also will produce attractive larger plants.
