Antirrhinum ‘Opus III / IV Red’
Year Trialed: 2009
Super color (3); Good stem length (2); Good plant vigor; nice uniform bloom time; Size, great in every way; Very healthy and productive; I thought they were both great colors but they did not sell well for me, not sure why.
Slightly more rust susceptible than the III/IV ‘Bright Red’; None; Red was not a popular color when this began to bloom, too hot too early for me; Stems not as strong as some ‘Opus’ varieties that I have bought as plugs, but that may be because of my handling rather than a cultivar defect.
‘Potomac Crimson’; Other Opus varieties.
None (2); Used Floralife for hard water; Cut into hydrator and then store in holding.
