  • Performs well in gardens under tough conditions as an annual or biennial.
  • Good for high-density Spring and Autumn pack or small pot programs.

More uniform habit, less stretch and 1 week earlier to flower than original Picotee. Colour pattern is not as distinct as a traditional "picotee," but delivers a nice novelty white and rose-red bicolour.
