  • Full-flowering varieties with tidy, green foliage provide bright and rich, non-fading colour in Autumn and Winter gardens and planters.
  • Compact plants require less PGRs, and the series needs less cold to initiate flowers, making for easier programming.
  • Superior seed quality results in a very uniform plant.

More stable, scarlet flame bicolour pattern than competing varieties. Its large, yellow flame brightens up any mix.
