February 2016 — ‘Gold Rush’ from Ecke (Dummen Orange) will work great in targeting early season sales, such as the U.S. Thanksgiving celebrations. This variety has a 7.5-week response time…

Consumers will be attracted to its distinctive gold and blush pink bracts. This variety definitely improves with age as the colour intensifies to deep gold with age. It works best in 6″ pots, bulb pans and as a mini.

The bracts develop at staggered heights, making this perfect for mantels and shelving when plants are viewed from the side.


It’s perfect for Thanksgiving table settings and other decorating applications.
