Godetia ‘Flamingo Salmon’
Years Trialed: 2001
Great color (7); Sell themselves quickly, long-lasting vase-life; Stiff stems, no netting required; 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; Difficult to blend in with other colors B Exotic looking flowers; cluster on one stem.
Too short (2); In field rain and wind damage; Japanese beetles love the flowers; Some leaf spot; We are too hot for summer production (IL); all plants dead by 8/15; No production of useable stems; Melted in heat; Flower size was small, could have been because we got it in so late; Needed cooler weather and more nutrients to get good stem length.
