Flower | Plant | Rating | Breeding
Flower
Size Medium
Form Good form but could be better.
Colour Dark red; fades very little with age unless temperatures are too hot.
Throat Wide open white throat with strong red lines, short but free anther tails.
Comments An old hybrid from Bangkok, the open throat is characteristic and hence the name given to this cultivar at Tropica Nursery.
Plant
Form Nice, robust yet compact growth.
Leaves Small to medium, thick leaves with prominently marked veins.
Other The relatively small leaves and compact growth give this plant an attractive vegetative appearance.
Overall Conclusions
Collector At one time this was a very common cultivar in the trade and nothing really special about it for the collector.
Floriculture Overall good vegetative growth and regular flowering make this a good general purpose addition to the range of Adeniums grown for pot plant use. Gives substantial color.
