(2, 3) Clear, deep rose. Long, open spikes on tall plants. Early as Group 3 and very reliable for Group 3 to Group 2 transition.
Monaco is well-suited to difficult “transition” periods, such as from Group 3, 4 (Summer) to Group 1, 2 (Autumn/Winter) varieties. Tolerates warm Autumn conditions without flowering too quickly, and produces high-quality flower spikes when Autumn weather is unusually cool and dark. Perfect for Winter production in warmer climates, Monaco performs well all year in areas with moderate temperatures and little fluctuation in daylength, such as near the Equator.
