A breeding breakthrough, with very uniform blooming within each variety, especially under short days so you can program to meet ship dates. Multi-use Guardian works well as a tall landscape/perennial variety, as a commercial cut flower, and in potted plant programs. Up to 6 weeks faster from transplant to bloom than O.P. types means more turns per sq. ft./metre of greenhouse space. As a greenhouse cut flower, Guardian can be grown under the same conditions as dianthus and snapdragons. Produces excellent stem quality for good cut flower shipability. Suitable as a greenhouse cut flower or for garden cut flower production.
