Gold Medal Approved Novelty

Zinnia hybrida Belize Double Scarlet

Optimal pot and garden performance, that is what Takii has been aiming for with this brand new Belize Zinnia series. As Belize branches more strongly from the lower node than from the upper one, the plants do not grow upright and keep a dome-like shape. Featuring a truly compact plant habit, this Zinnia offers many commercial possibilities.

Star product of the range Belize Double Scarlet shows eye-catching double, scarlet red flowers and has been awarded a Gold Medal for its remarkable scores in last year’s trial. The jury stated: "Attractive colour with good habit and performance. Better branching and really compact!"

Thanks to the compactness, growers will hardly need to use any PGRs and as the planting density can be increased, production capacity will go up. Retailers will love the entire series of compact Zinnia which allows for a neat, colourful bench presentation. Consumers will appreciate the better branching and vigorous growing habit of Belize Double Scarlet, which will keep containers and beds visually attractive.
