Trial: Annual

Years Trialed: 2001

Good Qualities

Good gold color (4); Nice for arrangements for florists, made good filler in short bouquets (Was great in Ann Arbor with short stems of Eustoma Balboa Purple producing maize & blue bouquets, the Univ. of Michigan colors); Good flower shape; ‘Gold Moon Improved ‘is an improvement over ‘Gold Moon’ in stem length and stem quality; This makes ‘Gold Moon Improved’ even better for quality cutflower production year-round, color and flower shape remained the same.


Too short (4); Leaf stippling (leaf miners); The market is rather soft on this crop; used as a filler, it is OK but other crops do better; Stems all fell over so needs support; Uninteresting color; A lot of the flowers were damaged by either heat or moisture; Didn’t flower, root knot nematodes.


No problems with disease; Kind of like a short tansy!
