Wintersun

Breeder:
Selecta/Ball
Summary:
The impressively large creamy white bracts with an oak-leaf shape characterize this cultivar. The centers of the bract clusters are fairly open and the transition bracts are not very obvious. The medium vigor plants have dark green foliage and good branching. Habit is fairly spreading and stem strength is probably less than average. Plants flowered early to mid-season. Wintersun will be useful for the large bracts and where plants can be ringed.
