Allure True Red Zonal Geranium
A Simply Beautiful® selection.
Consumers want super-sized geraniums…Allure delivers! • With full habit and fast fill, it’s the best zonal for larger container and basket programs. • Shows consistent color every time.


The most vigorous of the Ball FloraPlant zonal geraniums, Allure produces upright plants with high stress tolerance. They’re vigorous enough to keep their large, semi-double blooms all season in large containers and landscapes. Best-suited to 6-in. (15-cm) and larger pots, 10 to 14-in. (25 to 35-cm) baskets and large mixed containers.

NEW True Red delivers richer color than Red Passion, with shorter flower stem length.

Allure Tangerine and Red Passion earned excellent performance ratings at Colorado State University trials in 2010.

      Comments:
      Stick immediately upon arrival. Geraniums are best rooted in a media in strip form to allow for maximum air flow and avoid foliage overlap. After initial rehydration, careful misting is required to optimize callus and root initiation. Mature leaves should show slight wilting at midday and regain turgor in the late afternoon under ideal mist conditions. Leaf petiole wilting indicates undermisting. Overmisting leads to Botrytis. Remove flower buds at transplanting.
