  • Patent number: PP8371
    Abstract: Poinsettia `529` is an early flowering cultivar with dark red flower bracts. It has dark green, medium size foliage, stiff stems and a strong branching habit. Cultivar `529` has traits which differ from `Lilo` (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 6,694) and make `529` a more desirable plant for commercial pot plant production. Namely, cultivar `529` is earlier flowering, shorter, stiffer stemmed, freer branching, with brighter red bracts and improved post-production keeping qualities compared to `Lilo`. It is also less prone to "splitting".
