Hot Princess 3The hot pink color with purple undertones has made ‘Hot Princess’ a favorite with exhibitors and florists alike. The color does not fade even on hot days and the blooms have a heavy texture and last in the vase for up to 8 days. Added to the eye catching color is the classic form with high spiral center, beloved by exhibitors. Flowers are usually borne singly on long straight stems. The vigorous, upright, well branched bush has dark green, glossy, leathery foliage that may be susceptible to powdery mildew.
