Godetia ‘Flamingo Lavender Pink’
Years Trialed: 2001
Excellent color (4); Stiff stem, no netting, holds up in summer; Mild fragrance; Nice color, good stem length for godetia B Good number stems per plant B Would grow again if less expensive than ‘Grace’; Uniform B Took the heat pretty well, I think that it performed very well for godetia planted so late in the spring in the South (zone 7a); We grew in greenhouse and have never had luck with godetia until now B It bloomed until 6/30/01 and had to remove it because of spider mites B We are trying it as a winter crop too B We think we can do better with it in the winter; Hard to use in bouquets as the branches were short so whole plant needed to be cut B Lots of blooms but really unuseable for us; Exotic looking flowers, cluster on one stem.
Too short (3); We are too hot for summer production (IL), all plants dead by 8/15; None; Melted in heat; Flower size was small, could have been because we got it in so late (zone 7a); Needed cooler weather and more nutrients to get good stem length; Poor germination.
