March/April 2017 – Featuring a fast response time and bright red bracts, ‘Ferrara’ is great for quick, reliable, high-density production, allowing increased units per hectare with fewer inputs. Suitable for all pot sizes, this new backbone cultivar from D<15>mmen Orange is a superb choice to kick off the holiday decorating season.

Growers throughout Canada had phenomenal success with ‘Ferrara’ during the 2016 season. In addition to becoming a new grower favourite, ‘Ferrara’ performed very well in poinsettia trials across the continent, even winning first place in the red category at the Millstadt/Heimos trials in November.
