  • Very floriferous and well-branched plants display one-of-a-kind flowers.
  • Tight flowering window with an easy-to-grow, uniform, upright habit across all colours.
  • Outstanding in hot and sunny conditions.
NOTE: Tattoo blooms display the best colour contrast under warm conditions with moderate light; colours lighten with increased temperatures and light. Grown under cooler conditions and lower light, colours appear darker overall with less contrast and more purple colouration being expressed.
Beautiful, soft “orangesicle”-toned petals are marked with an inky, dark eye.
