Bred for specific seasonal performance, the Aida, Figaro, Opera and Mathilda series offer an outstanding lineup of greenhouse-grown selectable matthiola for year-round production. These matthiola are well-matched for timing and deliver very uniform plant performance. Transplanting for seasons earlier than listed will result in later flowering.
Greenhouse-grown matthiola are distinguished from field-grown types by the softer green leaves.
NOTE: Selectable matthiola will produce approximately 50% double-flowering types, but it is easy to select out the single-flowered types at the young plant stage. Refer to the PanAmerican Seed Product Information Guide at panamseed.com for details.
- Mathilda delivers the most uniform series on the market for habit and timing, with the best seed quality of any selectable matthiola.
- Important upgrade assures more programmable production, higher production per sq. ft./m in the greenhouse and fewer losses.
