Good Qualities

Beautiful color (4); More blush color than some other Ablushes@, nice branching; High spray, many flowers, tall enough for retail cuts; Vase life is so long, some of my customers compared them to tulips; Mixes well with lots of other things.


No problems; People prefer doubles; Variable heights, not an important color for sales; Seed came late, I think I would have done better with it if I had been able to get it out in the field earlier; Didn’t get as tall as I’d like, even in the hoophouse.


Floralife; Sugar. Editor’s note: see separate postharvest article in this issue for more information.


Similar to Ventura Blue Blush; I guess I would have to compare it to some of the other singles like Malibu, Malibu has larger flowers, so I would probably go with Malibu. I would try it again.
