Poinsettia Novelties

Three novelties have been introduced into the Poinsettia assortment:

Christmas Beauty Cinnamon with a light cinnamon colour joins the Christmas Beauty family – the line especially interesting for retailers and florists with its dense, star-shaped bracts. The variety is ideal for production of premium plants in all pot sizes.

Christmas Cracker is a new all-rounder. This new variety with a striking red colour is well-suited for production of all pot sizes and product types. With a reaction time of 8 weeks the variety ideally matches the main sales periods. In January the variety could already win its first award.  At the shelf life tests of the LTO* in the Netherlands Christmas Cracker won in the class “red colour in 11 cm pot”.

Etna is another new red variety with a vigorous growth habit and especially selected for big pot sizes in Southern productions.
