 'Twister Red'

Lanai is an excellent series, according to many growers, and the vibrant, cherry red and white colour combo of this new ‘Twister Red’ should sell extremely well. It’ll be a Loblaws exclusive for the first year, but then will become available to other growers thereafter.

Key points:

• Medium vigour.

• Mounding, slightly trailing habit.

• 6 to 10 inch height, 20 to 24 inch spread.

• Lanai series has excellent disease resistance.
