Antirrhinum ‘Calima Deep Rose’
Year Trialed: 2008
Beautiful bright color (7); Nice stem length and strength; Very full flower stalks, numerous flower stalks/plant – although not always of appropriate cut flower length; ‘Calima Deep Rose’ was in fact a very deep color for us here in coastal California and was much appreciated by all who saw in growing and in a vase, this cultivar also seemed to have very good rust resistance, even while blooming next to infested neighbors; Spikes strong and rather tight; More vigorous than ‘Calima Pure White’; Good fragrance; Love it.
Stems often were bent right at the point where flowers started, straightening of cuts in a cooler condition wasn’t always successful; Slowest of the 4 varieties tested to flower; None especially; Short stems; Not all buds on stems are open at same time; Needs netting for field grown, wind bent stems – less usable stems.
‘Potomac Cherry Rose’.
