'Lucie' possesses all the qualities of the 'Kramer's Rote' variety, where it comes from, and distinguishes itself through the following qualities:
- magnificent, slightly later violet-red flowers. The twice as big bell-shaped flowers give an impression of abundant flowering. Appearing in the month of December, it offers a great show right up to March.
- compact and ball shaped growth.
- dense, dark green foliage.
The WINTER BELLES ® range is made up of ‘Katia’, ‘Lucie’, ‘Phoebe’ and ‘Tylou’. Each of these varieties can be planted individually or with others, thus bringing a harmony of colour shades in both flowers and foliage, which extend their beauty from September to April.
