In the spotlight
The city of Denver is situated in the state of Colorado in the United States. Originally it was a city of gold diggers, so the name for this new variety has been rightly chosen: this productive variety is worth its weight in gold for a Phalaenopsis grower.
The Denver variety grows easily and uniformly, producing during a normal growing period of 26 weeks more than 30% of plants with three spikes and, moreover, it develops spikes. The plant has a flower size of 9 cm and an average plant height of 65 cm. The shelf life has been tested several times (including a one week transport simulation) and amounts to 11 weeks on average.
The Anthura Denver variety has elegant white flowers with a soft lilac stripe and a red lip. This makes the variety just a little different from the normal white/red lip and suitable for retail, the specialist trade and wholesale. All in all, Denver is a new champion for the standard assortment of
every Phalaenopsis grower!
